Scott, Neils,

Blacklisting orion_nand did the trick, thanks! Here is the link to the full
boot. There were a few FAILED's but the system boots and gets me to a
prompt, which is great:


I guess the question is now, why does the nand module get loaded, and is
there a way to have it not, so that others with dreamplugs can have a
seamless boot experience?

Also, I offer up my Dreamplug to test Fedora builds on, as you need. Just
let me know!
