OpenStack Installation - the interesting way

I'm working through the OpenStack on a single system installation method from

mostly because I'm a masochist, but also because I really wanted to get a feeling for where everything is at, where it goes and what the basis for the installation is.

Some things that came back to me from the first part of the installation

a)  touch is an awesome command
b)  should I put in a password for mysql or not (I chose not to because it's a lab for me, but probably not a good idea in a production environment)
c)  pay attention to the purpose of the command (I accidentally added two keystone endpoints that caused the subsequent commands to report two 'keystone' in with different IDs.  Still hoping I deleted the correct one if there was a correct one to delete which I can't seem to figure out yet)
d)  downloaded an image to glance and was able to report it back in image list when I was done, which was pretty cool

Will be starting on Nova as soon as I get back to it.

Wish me luck!
