Thanks!  Works like a charm.


More notes for those following along:

 - In the installer, I did not give root a password; that was a bad choice,
   since I could not log in as root and the installer doesn't seem to have
   set up a non-root user.  Booting in single-user mode with -s allows
   one to set a password for root.

 - "reboot" and ctrl-alt-delete did not work to reboot as a
   nonprivileged user.  So I ran "sync" and then pressed the reset
   button, with the unfortunate effect that on next boot e2fsck had a
   lot of complaints.  No matter; pressing 'y' repeatedly on the next
   fsck run seems to put us back in an okay state.

 - although networking is not set up automatically, following the
   instructions at [1] works nicely.
