Getting stuck following this tutorial:

http://www.plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/Installing_Debian_To_Flash


In this section it says to use the latest which is 2.6.35.4:
http://www.plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/Installing_Debian_To_Flash#Kernel


In this section, there is no part where it asks you to chose none for kernel:
http://www.plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/Installing_Debian_To_Flash#Run_the_Debian_Installer


In this section there is no ubiformat included in mtd-utils (and I don't know how to use git, or the debian testing repository (i'm still on Jaunty)):
http://www.plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/Installing_Debian_To_Flash#Convert_internal_flash_root_partition_to_UBIFS



and thats as far as i got....

Somehow I managed to get through it (i think) even though it didnt go anything like the tutorial found here:
http://www.plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/Installing_Debian_To_Flash

root@debian:~# uname -a
Linux debian 2.6.35.4 #1 PREEMPT Thu Aug 26 22:11:15 MDT 2010 armv5tel GNU/Linux




Now i'm just a little confused on the output of df. it looks like I have two root file systems? Can anyone help?

root@debian:~# df -h
rootfs                462M  349M  109M  77% /

tmpfs                 251M     0  251M   0% /tmp



root@debian:~# cat /etc/mtab

tmpfs           /tmp            tmpfs  defaults,nosuid,nodev    0 0



Also, now that I have debian on flash, how can i use my SD card for storage of binaries I compile that would usually go in /usr/local ?
