I'd prefer not to solve your problem in that way.  That difference was
an accident of file format.  We use the same file format for XO-1.5 and

Rather, what we have is automatic installation using the four game keys
method, which will search for a file name that matches the hardware,
such as

fs0.zip for XO-1
fs1.zip for XO-1.5
fs2.zip for XO-1.75

So you could have on your USB drive the following files:

os874.zd4 (from 11.2.0 for XO-1.5),
os874.zd4.zsp.fs.zip, renamed to fs1.zip,
os874.img (from 11.2.0 for XO-1),
os874.img.fs.zip, renamed to fs0.zip,
os880.zd4 (from 11.3.0 for XO-1.75),
os880.zd4.zsp.fs.zip, renamed to fs2.zip,

... and then the USB drive would work for any model.

To that end, I'd like to see the os${BUILD}.zd4.zsp.fs.zip files
included on build.laptop.org.

Non-technical users will need their USB drives prepared for them.
