I think that the 'homepage' for Browse.xo on SoaS is different from
the homepage we ship for the OLPC images (so CC'ing sugar-dev and
Simon). IMHO, there must be a 'school' or 'schoolserver' link that
points to http://schoolserver/

Without that line in the hosts file, you should be able to access
http://schoolserver/ _and_ the FQDN. If that's not the case, there is
a DNS problem, either in the XS itself (can you resolve 'schoolserver'
and the FQDN on the XS itself?) or perhaps the AP misconfigured (and
is acting as a NAT router + DHCP&DNS server).
