I installed potato on a netwinder (StrongArm SA-110) on Friday, and it went
just fine.  I tftp booted it using the rescue_netwinder.bin that I grabbed from
ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/dists/potato/main/disks-arm/current and then I
installed everything over the network.  Everything went flawlessly, except I
had to compile my own libssl and ssh (but even then, 'apt-get source -b <foo>'
worked perfectly).  Debian is surprisingly pretty mature on this platform.  Now
if I can convince the stupid little netwinder fan turn back off I'll be in
business... :-)
