Hold "C" and tap power button keep holding the "C" key down until the blue fedora boot screen appears Select Boot (Basic Video)-second line boots to bar display Fedora 14; (Name_____); Choose password for new keyring; hit cancel 6 times. F3 Ring appears

Use the usb to cat 5 Air dongle ( applesmc.78) as Network Manager does not recognize the Mac Air's wireless hardware. f1 neighborhood will be full of xxxxxxxxxx@jabber.sugarlabs.org names

To fix this go to drop down / My settings /About me. change colors and restart. On restart the names will be correct. ONLY IF you enter the key chain password you entered 1 time when you started sugar.
