Thanks for the authoritative guide, Fred.  I've concluded that my foray (into learning what's involved with converting the Appliance to a USB installation) has been enlightening into system architectures but unnecessary given the design shift.

So, to answer Willie's original question with Fred's points in mind: 

Instead of attempting to use the appliance, you can/should:
* Use any of the discussed tools to create a bootable USB installation from the appropriate version of Linux (CentOS as one example, 32-bit necessary in your specific case due to older hardware)
* Boot from the USB drive and install the OS per Fred's instructions
* Install Rivendell also according to Fred's instructions
* And, as Bonnie used to say, "Bob's your uncle!"**

Hopefully that's close enough to "foolproof" for anyone, and without needing to burn an optical DVD.
