I forgot how much fun it is to partition harddisks on the Amiga, especially
with a semi broken keyboard. I do not have the drivers installed, that can
work with disks > 4GB, so I had to partition it blindly:
Vendor: ST325062 Model: 0A Rev: 3.AA

Disk /dev/sda: 64 heads, 31 sectors, 246167 cylinders, RDB: 0
Logical Cylinders from 2 to 246166, 1015808 bytes/Cylinder

I installed sarge on it with debootstrap and then upgraded to etch. Did you
know that ssh is not installable in etch-m68k? There seems to be no
libssl0.96 in etch. I haven't booted into this yet, I need to power down
crest to hook up this disk. Now that is has successfully built linux-2.6,
could we shut it off for a while?
