The homepage has been updated to try to clarify that, let me know if it

That will not be the case for Emdebian Crush - we're aiming at support
for a Debian distribution small enough to fit on the device itself.
I've got a target for getting Emdebian Crush onto the internal storage
of the NSLU2 (6.4Mb). It will be a while before we get that small but
it is possible.
