Cool. A live image will do, combined with cjb's script to turn them
into jffs2 images...

I've used pungi a bit, and migrated to revisor (command-line, however)
-- that's how we build the installer isos for the XS. But I want to
offer a jffs2 img to put to the NAND on the XO or to prepare an SD
card. Running anaconda _on the XO_ inordinately slow...
