I've tryed to reflash the kernel this weekend, but I couldn't find
/dev/scsi nor /dev/disk, though dmesg rapported event of finding the
disk drive. Additionally /dev/bus/usb/ tree was there, but I couldn't
figure out how to use it?

I have started the installer with the other USB_drive, and after
entering the shell /dev/scsi & /dev/disk trees ware not found.

Could mount mtdblock as jffs2 be an option for my kernel-reflash?? - ( I
havn't tryed that, but just now crossed my mind...)

So obviously the deb installer found from debian-etch-rc1-20061102.zip
is not **that** transparent tool in order to reflash kernel-image and
rescue my idle system.
