SMF first boot service

I recently went back and cleaned up the blog links to OOW2011 Install hands-on-lab materials, including an example on writing a first-boot service. The idea is to create a software package, then publish it into your IPS repository.  During the installation this package is installed from the repository, and upon the first reboot right after the installation, the corresponding SMF service (delivered in this package) is invoked.
