Sorry for the late reply. I was a bit busy with writing docs and fixing 
bugs over the last days. I'm not sure why you're trying to use the 
livecd-iso-to-xo script, as we're providing .img and .crc files for the 
latest snapshots: http://download.sugarlabs.org/soas/snapshots/2/

To all: Any help with debugging issues, especially the critical ones, 
would be greatly appreciated: https://bugs.launchpad.net/soas/+bugs

Oh, and just to make sure: SoaS is supposed to go GOLD this weekend!
