Additional - if you're really looking for the *RC1* live image, you
don't want a nightly. RC lives go in the same tree as DVD / net install
images, they just show up a bit later. For RC1 they may not show up at
all as we have a known bug which would cause live images generated with
the RC1 package set to be unbootable, so it'd be kinda pointless. We'll
probably just go straight to RC2.
