Would it be possible to download one of the images at these links as part of the script?

http://stacklet.com/downloads/images/vmdk/fedora/12
http://stacklet.com/downloads/images/vmdk/fedora/12.64bit

The images are in vmdk format, so a one-time conversion may be necessary

-> qemu-img convert -O raw fedora.12.x86-64.vmdk fc12.img

The image seems to use DHCP, so a pre-cooked ifcfg-eth0 may need to be put into it.

-> mount -o loop,offset=32256 fc12.img ./mnt
-> cp ifcfg-eth0.master ./mnt/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
