Hi,all,help me.
I downloaded uImage and uInitrd from Debian HOWTOs Kirkwood
SheevaPlug Installation(http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/install.html).
I successfully installed this debian on usb drive to sheevaplug .
But, I could not installed this debian on usb drive to nimbus development kit.
In sheevaplug, debian installer shows "Manual" in Partition disks part.
Then I can select usb drive partitions.
But,in nimbus, I cannot select manual and select partitions.
Debian installer shows only  "Undo changes to partitions" and                                      x
"Finish partitioning and write changes to disk"

In sheevaplug, debian installer shows Partition disks message as follows.

  x The installer can guide you through partitioning a disk (using          x
  x different standard schemes) or, if you prefer, you can do it            x
  x manually. With guided partitioning you will still have a chance later   x
  x to review and customise the results.                                    x
