Sascha did this first with Debian, and I expanded on the idea with
my Ubuntu and Tiny Core builds, both of which contain two kernels with an
OpenFirmware script that chooses between them based on hardware model

I didn't think it was so important for OLPC OS, since the install file
format is not common between XO-1 and XO-1.5.  .img vs .zd
