XO image - I'll try tomorrow with the kernel you report as working -
and if that works report a bug against the (newer) one I ended up

Frankly I didn't try it with the XS iso, but assumed it'd be the same
as with the F11 DVD. Will try.

Earlier, when preparing the installer for my build machine (which has
no DVD/CD reader), mkusbinstall (running on a F9 host) did not work
for me with the F11 DVD, and I found some instructions that fixed it,
by downloading the netboot iso and placing it in /images.

Maybe there was PEBKAC and/or just a better fix (hints?). I just hope
the instructions for our end users can be simple :-)
