You've done what I wanted to discuss -- split apart the xs from a bare
bones Fedora Core, and defer XS install until after firstboot. So I'll
spin a FC16 iso, and try to get it ready to do a phase 2 install via
usbmount, and maybe tftp across the network.
Do you know if there is a script that automates the rpm generation from
sources at dev.laptop.org?
It'll take a few days, since I'm relocating from Calif to NYC Wednesday,
and have other priority tasks.
