Hi, Robert. If you can - as quickly as you can - could you test this
build of firstboot:


and see how it works for you? Just download and install the appropriate
package for your arch, then edit /etc/sysconfig/firstboot and change the
NO to YES, and run 'chkconfig firstboot on' as root. Then restart and it
should boot into firstboot. Are the buttons visible now? I hope they may
be, but I suspect they won't.

Don't run through the wizard either way, it may have unpredictable
results. Once you've tested, reboot to runlevel 3 (add '3' as a kernel
parameter), quit out of the system-config menu thing that loads up, log
in as root, and change /etc/sysconfig/firstboot back to NO and disable
the firstboot service.
