Even if it is fully functional and on the Nand, it probably won't survive
an update - there isn't enough space.
Martin Michlmayr's site (www.cyrius.com) has the Debian installer but
I don't know that there's an easy way to install on the NAND.
My older Sheevaplug next door runs an updated boot loader then boots
from the SD card, for example.
