Aha. Unfortunately, I cannot find the hd-media installation method for
ARM. I'll check this myself later, but is this a script which I can copy from
another architecture or must it be built for ARM?

Some other questions / comments:

Is there a problem storing the .iso on the same "disk" as the distribution is
installed on?

I'm suspecting that when the installation will fail on the reboot, since I
guess I won't be able to mount the Debian initrd (no cramfs patch) afterwards.

The Psion's 640x240 screen makes the selection boxes rather small, i.e. only
two "selection lines" showing in the main menu. The colors are also fairly
hard to read on the monochrome screen. Oh well.
