I just tried this on an Intel Classmate 3 (2goPC) with Windows XP Home.
Booting from a Kingston DataTraveler 2GB USB drive gets through the
Fedora progress bar. Screen goes black and stalls with this line in
upper left and a blinking underscore cursor on the next line:

r8169 0000:02:00.0 PCI INT A disabled

I will test on the Asus EeePC 701, Classmate 2 and a UMPC tomorrow.

Hi folks,

there's another snapshot of soas-2 ready for testing! There will be
another snapshot on this Sunday to have an up2date image for bug
triaging sessions. It's really important for us to get as much feedback
as possible in this state of soas-2, since we'd like to get a release
rolled out soonish and should have all blockers fixed beforehand, right?


Now what's new here?

* Nearly every Sugar-related package has been updated! Thanks to all the
maintainers for making this possible... :)

* You can now enjoy builds of Read and EToys - cool, heh?

* The image has been slimmed down again, we had a lot of redundant KDE
stuff in there. For now just 270 MB!

* Anaconda has been included - you might want to check Kushal's
instructions for installing SoaS here: [1]

* As already mentioned, from now on, all images will contain the SoaS
version number to avoid confusion.

Please be aware of the fact that this is still based on pre-beta
software - namely Fedora 11 - which has an upcoming beta freeze
scheduled for March 10.

Finally, if you've another activity, package or feature to suggest,
please do so immediately here [3]!

Thanks again and happy testing!
   --Your SoaS Team
