so it turns out building F10 image on F9 host won't work b/c of selinux differences, semodule install fails in chroot b/c it expects something not present in active selinux policy and there can be only one active...
Disabling selinux in ks produces bootable F10 image, but then I hit weird problem: in standalone config setup selection doesn't accept Enter... Anyone seen that with F10-on-F10 builds?
