Please note that the current Fedora-17-Beta-TC2-Live images lack
some traditional Live CD/USB features.

See this bug report.

The --home-size-mb NNN option of livecd-iso-to-disk produced a /LiveOS/home.img
filesystem for the liveuser's home directory.

This feature made possible the --encrypted-home option, which would secure the privacy of a user directory on a Live USB system.

The home.img filesystem was also read/write/delete without consuming the LiveOS overlay.  This is important for non-short-term Live USB deployments, such as Sugar on a Stick, where overlay exhaustion can be a significant problem.
Adam Williamson has patched fedora-live-base.ks, but testing Fedora-17.TC5-x86_64-Live-SoaS.iso
shows that a home.img filesystem is not mounted.
Adam's patches need to be applied to fedora-live-mini.ks in order to fix Sugar
on a Stick and any other builds based on fedora-live-mini.ks
