1) The install instructions for soas live are missing:

need to add use f3 menu item = (list view) on right top of f3 screen; 
then scroll down to bottom of list.

start terminal app and type "liveinst" to start live installer (anaconda)

2) the link for "Fedora Installation process" is for Fedora 20. This 
need to be updated.

  "SoaS starts from a USB drive ("stick"), and can be installed with the 
Fedora installation process 
Or, the Fedora installer may be started from the Sugar Terminal 
activity, with the command , or using a tutorial 

the command (in terminal activity) is never detailed.  link to 
graphical install shows a server installation... This is not correct for 
a proper live install as it is too complicated.
