Thanks Arne for trying to shed some light on this one.
I'll follow up with a bug report.
I can't seem to ssh into neo.  Mind you, I have flashed soooo many images in
the last couple of days, I hardly know what I have now!  Ha!  All I know is
that there is no rootfs from the FSO reps that works for me after Jan 12
I'll keep picking away it, thank you for your input so far.
