i've already moved this discussion to the fedora list, and i've got
past this point, but there's definitely something strange with
firstboot.  at this point, i'm convinced there's a bug since, once
it's run, there is no obvious way you can reboot and add the kernel
parm "reconfig" to have it run again in reconfigure mode.

anyway, it's all over there on the fedora list.
