I ran into two snags.  The biggest being a change in focus, the second a 
change in available time.  I got to looking at what to do with an installed 
system, and came upon the live CD / bootable USB stuff.  This kind of
derailed the process of installing on all of them, and I moved to installing
on the best of the set, hoping to use it to drive building an image to make
a bootable CD with.  I ran into a problem there, shelved the process for
a while, and before coming back to it, got involved with a couple of 
different (paying) side jobs, and have since added two more, so I haven't
had time to get back to it.
