In the meantime; this will bring up the Network Neighborhood for
Collaboration over the internet:
Sebastian found this and it works:
I uploaded it to a more convenient location:
In sugar terminal:
2-) wget http://people.sugarlabs.org/Tgillard/telepathy-gabble-0.9.11-1.fc14.i686.rpm
3-) rpm -Uvh http://people.sugarlabs.org/Tgillard/telepathy-gabble-0.9.11-1.fc14.i686.rpm
4-) Restart USB
This will have to be done for testing until the update gets pushed into the soas spin build.

Step by step procedure to use the liveinst command in sugar terminal
(Anaconda) to write a 4GB USB with a ext4 (real file system):
* tested on soas-i386-20100501.07.iso as a 2GB USB today' (Minimum size
of 4GB is required as it does not use a Compressed filesystem with
overlay like the live USB.)
I wish this could be more simply scripted...It is NOT for novices to try.
This needs to be simplified!
The resulting USB is VERY stable as it uses a ext4 Journaled File system
and will not fill up easily.
