If you just make a regular Blueberry SoaS, and keep a LiveCD Boot helper handy incase some machine does not support USB booting, you should be pretty much there. All instructions are here:


The only downsides seem to be due to lack of hardware support (graphics cards and wireless cards being the common fails). Example, I'm 95% sure my MacBookPro would boot all the way into SoaS if I install custom (non free) Nvidia graphics and Broardcom drivers – so as it is I still just use Blueberry in a VirtualBox VM (working very nicely now with some tweaks, see this SoaS mail-list thread http://lists.sugarlabs.org/archive/soas/2009-December/000548.html).
