Great News;

Fedora-14-x86_64-Live-SoaS CD Boots fine on an Apple MacBook Air with an 
external hp-DVD/CD usb drive.

Hold "C"  and tap power button keep holding the "C" key down until the 
blue fedora boot screen appears
Select Boot (Basic Video)-second line
boots to bar display Fedora 14; (Name_____); Choose password for new 
keyring; hit cancel 6 times.
F3 Ring appears

Use the usb to cat 5 Air dongle ( applesmc.78) as Network Manager does 
not recognize the Mac Air's wireless hardware.
f1 neighborhood will be full of xxxxxxxxxx at jabber.sugarlabs.org names

To fix this go to drop down / My settings /About me. change colors and 
restart. On restart the names will be correct.
ONLY IF you enter the key chain password you entered 1 time when you 
started sugar.
