It would be better to enable login accounts, which is a Fedora feature
that we turned off for the OLPC builds because of the 1:1 scenario.

Sugar already well supports multiple users on the same computer, using
this feature.

Switching from one user to another would not require a boot, and
therefore would be relatively fast.

This also supports 1:n sharing scenario.

My mistake.

ok boot int:\boot\olpc.fth
