Thanks for this.
However, I now have some possibly dumb questions.

On the Sheevaplug, I am used to downloading a uImage and a uInitrd (these
are the only files available in the FTP directory above), putting them on a
USB stick, booting the plug and running commands like this on the u-Boot
command line:

usb start
ext2load usb 0:1 0x00800000 /uImage
ext2load usb 0:1 0x01100000 /uInitrd
setenv bootargs console=ttyS0,115200n8 base-installer/initramfs-tools/driver-policy=most
bootm 0x00800000 0x01100000

The only installers that I can find in the daily build directories are iso
images. I do not know how to use these on the plug.

Is there a way of converting an iso image to a uImage/uInitrd?
