OK.  Some more information.  I should have read the known issues that 
video was not supported yet and not waste time when I forgot my console 
serial usb adapter.

So I just built of 0725 and did a firstboot.  It hung at:

there was no prompting for root password, time zone or login user. So I 
built another Sd card with --norootpass

This one proceeded to the login prompt.  Again no prompting for time 
zone or user.

I logged in as root and observered no network addresses.  My F20 remix 
has no problem getting both my IPv4 and v6 addresses, so I dug deeper.  
The calculated MAC address is:


OOPS!  first octet with value of '3' is BAD.  That is setting the 
multicast bit per my understanding of local scope MAC addresses (more on 
this subject another time, but I work in IEEE 802 and have learned a lot 
of MAC addresses, and my reading is that this first octet must be xx10).

I did a screen capture in screen, so can provide any displayed info.

I am building yet another SD card.  Hopefully this one will create an 
allowable MAC address.
