I think we might have some news you could be interested in:
The SoaS Beta image has been composed and uploaded, so you can grab it
now already, even if it's scheduled for release tomorrow. The link is
Secondly, we've a boot helper now based on F11 ready! So if your BIOS
doesn't support booting from an USB key, you can just download this
additional iso, burn it to a CD and boot from it while having your USB
key plugged in: http://people.sugarlabs.org/sdz/soas-boot.iso
Note that if you're going to use the boot helper, your USB key (or other
device) needs to be named FEDORA. This is really a requirement! Both the
liveusb-creator and the livecd-iso-to-disk script support this now. The
latter one changes this automatically when being run with the --format
argument (this removes all your data on the key, though). You can grab a
new version here: http://people.sugarlabs.org/sdz/livecd-iso-to-disk.sh
Please test this combination, as it's an important part to get SoaS
working on older hardware! Finally, if somebody could create a CD label
for the boot helper disk, this would be really great!
Thanks and happy testing!
