Fedora-16-Alpha-i686-Live-Desktop [A]- install problems:

I could not use the install to HD Icon in gnome3-shell to install to the 
usb HD [B]
These all failed for me:
1-)use default settings
2-) use whole disk (no LVM)
3-) custom with / ext 4 1000 /230000 and swap

This finally worked:
4-) format to ext4 in palimpset (on CD) then liveinst from root 
terminal; use whole disk (non LVM)

grub 1.99~rc1 firstboot time user no smolt profile (empty)
3.0.0.-1
firstboot; time; user;  smolt no profile (empty)
gdm login ok
dm logs in gnome3-shell 3.1.4  correctly sees wireless and wired networking

=========install sugar=============
add/remove programs:
sugar
select all but read
add education/sugar to favorites
yum install alacarte
alacarte/education/sugar (properties add "-f" to end of command) for 
full screen display
exit alt f2 (r    ) reset gnome3-shell

*sugar (sugar-emulator) in gnome3-shell
sugar starts:
