Hi, i want to install debian on my esata disk on my sheeva and i don't know where to place the boot partition, i have read that uboot have problems to find usb disk than it's better to place the boot on a sd card but my sheeva don't have cards slot then i must use a pendrive or directly place it on de esata disk, what do you think about it?
The other option is to install into internal flash but have the problem of the limit lenght, can i place boot on internal flash and file sistems on disk?

or simply, what do you think that is the best instalation of debian on the sheeva?

You can install Debian to eSATA now and the problems with an USB disk should not apply when you boot via eSATA.

See http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/install.html for the install guide.
