A few additions to this (learned in the last few mins):

* PetiteCloud assumes that drives are vtbdXsY (will be looked into later)
and thus once you get the bootable drive to do a partial loading you will
need to edit /etc/fstab to make it so it points to something more
reasonable like adaXsY.

* The NIC's appear in the bridge on the host and are on the instance but
seem to not allow any traffic (likely an issue with how to setup multiple
NIC's).. i.e. the interface is pingable from inside the instance but not
from the outside world
