The current one in F-12/rawhide. I've only become aware of the EFI
support (via Luke's blog post about the new livecd-creator tool) so
its on my list to investigate shortly. Is there anything special that
needs to be done or should it just work? If there is something that
needs to be done can someone point me to what that is.

Unfortunately the only EFI based device I have to test this with is a
O2 joggler and I have no idea what version of EFI it has, just that
its a 32 bit Atom based system that I want took look at closer for
hacking when I get some spare cycles.
