That's now more than one week old, which is too old to be useful
for testing the install process and "out of the box" experience.

Turning off firstboot via chkconfig does not work.
firstboot must run [once] and succeed.  If not, then firstboot will continue
to be invoked on every boot until it "succeeds" (process return code 0).

I booted to single-user mode, ran "chkconfig firstboot off", and resumed
booting.  firstboot still ran (and still failed because interlock with
X11 server does not work.)
