Some days it has to be Sherrod that teaches us the most interesting things... never heard "Bob's your Uncle" before, but the Wiki article was sure interesting!!! LOL

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.
