Thanks for that. I'll try the F-11 beta live cd shortly. Just tried it
on a usb stick on my eeePC without much luck as it didn't get past the
syslinux prompt (the syslinux prompt was a grey shadow of what you
usually see) but then I've not tried recreating the stick using livecd
tools again. The livecd does boot fine in a KVM instance though....
