If it's any consolation, I ended up using the livefs CD + 
-memstick image as well.

I later found out that you only need the -memstick image.  If you 
go to Fixit/USB, you may get a "No devices found" message.   If 
you get that, you should then go to Options/Re-scan devices, and 
then go to Fixit/USB.

 From there, I was golden.
