Hi All,

Wanted to let you all know that I wrote up a guide on how to get started with Debian on the Sheevaplug. Hopefully it will help users avoid some of the mistakes I made along the way! I gave credit to the plug forums and all those who helped me out. So thanks! If you all see anything that seems inaccurate or wrong, let me know and I'll change it. Thanks!

You might consider posting a link to your guide. I was unable to find it without contacting you off line. It's a shame that it isn't easily found by checking this thread (or am I missing something that is staring me in the face?)

You are correct: on my screen with my eye site, it wasn't until you pointed it out that I noticed that that word was a link. Sorry.

Appears as like if missing words in your guide

2. Find a 256MB or bigger flash drive, and format it to FAT16 or FAT32.
3. Copy the contents of the “installer” sub-folder of the newly created “sheevaplug-installer-v1.0″ folder to the flash drive. Once again, just copy the contents of that subfolder, NOT the entire subfolder.

5. Go here to find the link to download mgillespie’s pre-packaged Debian Squeeze rootfs.tar.gz file. The forum post has a link to a mediafire page. Click the Debian-Squeeze folder and then click the rootfs.tar.gz file to download it.
6. Take the newly downloaded rootfs.tar.gz file........
