Nice! :-)

One of the things we talked about a while back was a bootable cd for the OS/code and a USB memory stick (or flash drive, or whatever) holding the dynamic/writeable and user-specific data (like certs). So just give people a memory stick to plug in and boot off the CD. Would that work? It'd require some additional script tweaks I imagine to go look for the memory stick...?

Another option could be to look on the network for the data - booting off a CD or network image, and grabbing the data from some ssl-based service?
