[Soekris] Voyage Linux problem

Hi Robin,

maybe you should consider sticking with a well-documented mainstream OS
distro for the time being, i.o. trying out some specialized piece of
kit. Because A: where are you going to find a CF card with only 64 or
128 MB anyway? and B: I'm not sure why each and every single application
needs its own Linux "distribution" these days -- its becoming ridiculous
IMHO (publishing a set of config instructions or some configuration
script would probably do in most cases).

Performing a Debian TFTP install on a Soekris box is a piece of cake. If
you master apt-get and/or dselect and are willing to spend some time
searching the docs/net/howtos for setting things up, you will find your
box up and running in no time, and you will learn a lot about your
system in the process.

With plain old Debian, it's all been done before, and you will have to
look hard for something that isn't documented or answered on some Debian
forum or mailing list.

Have fun!
