Please try and let me know. I froze on that version because some XO-1
specific bugs had appeared in the following revisions. Those may have
gone by now.

To install a kernel on the XO-1, you need to do some trickery:

  rpm -i kernel-*
  rsync -a /boot/ /versions/running/boot/

This is due to the odd filesystem layout used to implement the alternate
boot scheme (I wonder how many people actually use it and if it's still
worth keeping).
