Following instructions at http://www.cyrius.com/debian/nslu2/install.html and using the "unofficial" image (because I don't have a USB ethernet dongle), all seems to go well. But since the install takes a long time, if I walk away and come back, I see this screen:

Unfortunately the ssh session times out, since the install takes over 2 hours and I walked away. When I try to start the install again ("% ssh installer@myslug") I come back part way, but then get a red screen that says the install failed. Even if I try to redo the step, the install is labeled as failing.

Would not proceed with prior error(s)

Overall install: [E]


Attempt to install debian-4.0r2 onto an NSLU2 following instructions provided at http://www.cyrius.com/debian/nslu2/install.html all seems to go well, but you can't walk away during the install lest the ssh session timeout. Is there a way to tell ssh, "don't time out at all"? Or is there a proper way to restart the installer at the point where the ssh session timed out? It seems the installer may have left some temporary files in place that, when restarted/reentered, confuse it and keep it from completing the installation.

   [ Martin Michlmayr ]
   * Remove all information about RiscPC because these machines are
     no longer supported.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Document the new tasksel/desktop preseed for lenny.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Add cm-super to build dependencies as that improves the quality of the
     Russian PDF version.
   * Suggest 'nousb' instead of debian-installer/probe/usb as USB modules are
     now loaded automatically.
   * Fix incorrect instruction for preseeding local repositories.
     Thanks to Rémi Demarthe. Closes: #420894.
   * Add translatable entities for Continue, Cancel and Go Back buttons.
   * Add build dependencies on texlive-lang-* packages for languages for which
     the manual has translations.
   * Document new boot parameters "lowmem" and "dmraid".
   * Document new location of graphical mini.iso images.
   * Document base-installer/kernel/image preseed.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Document new lilo-installer/skip preseed.
   * Document passwd/user-default-groups preseed.
   [ Colin Watson ]
   * Recommend preseeding mirror/country to "manual" rather than "enter
     information manually" (choose-mirror 2.17).
   * Remove text talking about devfs-style device names, which are no longer
   * preparing/minimum-hardware-reqts.xml: Pluralise "gigabyte" consistently.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Document clock-setup/ntp.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Support for sparc32 has been discontinued for Lenny. This also means that
     booting from floppy is no longer supported for sparc.
   * Extend the documentation of apt-setup, especially the decision whether or
     not to use a network mirror. Document selection of services.
   * Document new apt-setup/services-select and related hostname preseeds.
   * Add some information about creating device files in the appendix on chroot
     installs; also add a note that the appendix only covers the basic steps
     of a chroot install.
   * Warn against installing Debian while another OS is hibernated.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Document how to preseed partman-auto to use only available disk, no matter
     what it's name is.
   * debian/rules: call dh_md5sums.
   * Document debian-installer/exit/halt preseed.
   [ Colin Watson ]
   * Clarify that you need to actually provide an autopartitioning method as
     well as preseeding the partman confirmation messages.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Make copyright refer explicitly to GPL version 2 as that is the version
     included in the appendix; add reference to /usr/share/common-licenses to
     make Lintian happy.
   * Rename doc-base.TEMPLATE to TEMPLATE.doc-base to avoid its inclusion in
     the package for the first architecture. Closes: #416304.
   * Modify language codes that include a country for the doc-base document ID
     so they only contain valid characters.
   * Remove the PDF section in doc-base files if PDF format is not built for a
   * Update standards version to 3.7.3; no changes needed.
   * Patch from Changwoo Ryu to replace Hangul-ucs with ko.tex fonts for Korean
     PDF version of the manual. Closes: #457137.
   * using-d-i:
     - move clock-setup, tzsetup and user-setup to reflect their changed
       position in the installation procedure
     - mention that clock-setup will now attempt to set the system time from a
       time server
     - split clock-setup as part is now executed during finish-install
     - add instructions on how a different time zone from the one(s) that match
       the selected location can be set (as that is a FAQ)
     - improve readability of partman section by using separate subsections for
       guided and manual partitioning
     - network-console: add information about dropped connections and how to
       avoid that (closes: #458154); add footnote with command to remove a host
       from the known_hosts file
   * howto, preseed: update for reordering of the installation procedure.
   * Change build dependency on gs-common to ghostscript.
   * Use --previous when updating PO files so translators can see the changes
     in a string.

   * Use &releasename; rather than hardcoding etch in sources.list
     recommendation for chroot installs. Closes: #458459.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Make UTF-8 the default encoding for the text version for all languages
     that still used ISO-8859-1.
   * Korean text version changed to UTF-8 on request of Changwoo Ryu.
   * Japanese text version changed to UTF-8 on request of KURASAWA Nozomu.
   * Enable PDF for Korean for website builds.
