RE: success report, armel on nslu2
I can verify that there are still issues with the RC2 Installer if you
do not preformat the Flash drive beforehand. I have not been able to
get it past closing the SSH sessions unless I had previously formatted
the memory stick with a swap partition and a main ext3 partition.

Subject: success report, armel on nslu2
I bought another nslu2 yesterday, and a 4GB USB flash drive. Absolute
disaster; every combination I tried ended up failing, usually while
installing the base system. Fiddled with the etch RC2 installer, armel
installer, automatic vs manual partitioning, etc.
Today I threw out the memory stick (it was a "PQI u230") and replaced
it with a 2GB "Corsair Flash Voyager" which had good reviews for speed
and reliability. Worked like a charm on the first try. I did
format the USB stick on a desktop Linux computer first, giving 256MB to
swap and the rest as an ext3 partition. Probably would have worked fine
letting the installer do this, but but I wanted to minimize the number
things that could go wrong.
