-fe- is not an option for -xtabond-.  Are you thinking you have a
dynamic panel model, or S is endogenous (i.e. you mean -xtivreg-)?  If
the latter, what instruments are you using?  You probably want L and
L*S included as regressors, and you then have 2 endog vars: S and L*S.
 Then you want instruments that differentially affect S in the early
and late periods.
