This is actually a "bug" with the python-virtinst package (though it equally might be a bug with the Fedora-16 kernel).  Switching component to python-virtinst for now.

Never mind, that commit is basically useless.

According to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=736318 the f16 initrd format is substancially different so I don't really have any ideas.

verified python-virtinst-0.500.6-2.fc15.noarch
it works now.
