I am trying to install EABI on my c860, but the untar of the root-fs to ext2 formatted 2GB SD fails with "tar: decompression failed" and "tar: Short header" I have re-downloaded and done the checksum. Am I missing something?

If you have a cardreader you could try untar'ing it on a desktop Linux box...

Yes I'll try it on my linux box (it is a print/file server at the moment) though I tried on my Mac OS X Leopard and it wouldn't work either. Perhaps I'll download again on the linux box too.

I think I am finding installing Debian on my c860 challenging. I am following the instructions here:

http://www.oesf.org/index.php?title=Q16:_I...o_my_SD_card%3F

But find that it doesn't explain things in full (like the kernel/kernel modules thing). Are there any other instructions, or just -er- an installer I missed?
