I've made the AMI public. It's ami-f695f39f and it's called

You will need to run it using a paravirtualized boot kernel which allows
you to run the custom kernel. Using the ec2 command line tools the command
would look like

ec2-run-instances -z us-east-1c -n 1 -t t1.micro -k ec2-keypair --kernel
aki-b4aa75dd ami-f695f39f

Note in particular the kernel you will need to 'preboot' with aki-b4aa75dd

Just replace the availability zone, instance size and ec2-keypair you want
with your own preferences. Login as root with the same ssh-keypair you
specified. It's ssh-key login only. Anyway if you use ec2 it's all pretty
standard apart from kernel you need to initially boot with.
