Oke, now i see that you have loaded the rammode.

I'm going to try this now. I'll keep you informed.

Is install of rammode needed to install debian?? Or is it possible to
install debian with the two files (ramdisk.gz and zImage).

I believe so. I only used these 2 files from:
http://d-i.debian.org/daily-images/armel/daily/iop32x/network-console/ss4000e/

Then loaded them with:

load -v -r -b 0x01800000 -m ymodem ramdisk.gz
load -v -r -b 0x01008000 -m ymodem zImage
exec -c "console=ttyS0,115200 rw root=/dev/ram mem=256M@0xa0000000" -r 0x01800000

This started the installer. After the installer I believe I had to make this a permanent boot script so again in redboot I did:

fconfig boot_script_data
fis load -b 0x01800000 ramdisk.gz
fis load -b 0x01008000 zImage
exec -c "console=ttyS0,115200 rw root=/dev/ram mem=256M@0xa0000000" -r 0x01800000

Yes, I have /dev/ram and it works.

Important thing to note is that whenever you copy/paste these commands make sure the double quotes/apostrophes are correct ", not anything else. And note that sometimes the 'x' might not be x, but some character resembling x.

So it's best to type them

I don't have a rammode file to install on the NAS. If I can get a copy of
your files is it possible to install it with redboot because I can't connect
the NAS throw putty (SSH).

rammode from my SS4000-E:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/d08q8s7sptn5jw1/rammode

I really hope this works for you. I've been lost with this system too :-)

Fine, if you've got a SS4000-E.

I can also take a copy of mine if needed.

Henk want a (bit too) clean system... :-/

But his nas is not yet bricked ; we have some ressources to explore.
