[Soekris] Installing Debian Linux from a CD

I have 'real' Debian working fine (all-be-it via pxe) - but I had to use
Lilo instead of Grub (Grub kept hanging).  If you look at the Lilo conf
file there is an option to use the serial port in there.  You just need
to edit it accordingly.

Good luck

Hi Steve,

> voyage is debian. Why not use that as a starting point??

First, I want a "real" Debian that also has stuff like manpages and all
that. I got a hard drive anyway, so memory capacity isn't an issue for
me. Also, I don't like the fact that Voyage always mounts the CF card as
read-only and you have to use remountrw to effectively use it. Most
importantly, I wanna run Debian Lenny on my Soekris which doesn't really
work with Voyage yet.
