  ok, i'll do that, but i'm still concerned about resolving the issue
i described earlier -- during firstboot, the display was clearly
configured incorrectly so that i couldn't even see the buttons in the
lower right.

  if i want to test that again, what's the proper way to force
re-running firstboot upon reboot?  i can see the setting in
/etc/sysconfig/firstboot, and also being able to run "chkconfig" on
it.  is there an approved way of simply asking to run it again at boot
time?  thanks.
