I'm a C1000 owner looking for the "full disto" experience. I dabbled with OpenBSD, and got it working for a while, but I never got the hang of it. I went back to pdaX because it offered the closest thing to a desktop environment on a Z. Debian seems like something to be excited about.

The standard install method seems to be from the z1000_debian.txt document. The problem is that I don't want to commit to uboot. Also, it seems like a much better idea to install debian to a SD card then NAND, just for the extra space.

Does anyone have a method for booting a debian filesystem on SD to share? Maybe Altboot?

Well I managed to get Debian armel working on my 860 using just an SD for the filesystem. It required installing Angstrom to flash first, but Debian doesn't use that filesystem, only the kernel. Plus I didn't use uboot either. See http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showto...mp;#entry161379 for details. The files will differ for your machine but it should follow the same principle.

I noticed your post, but I cant find a zImage-2.x.xx-akita-sdboot.bin for the C1000. It doesn't look like its in Angstrom's install kit for the Akita. I didn't see it in the older builds either.

Could someone build a zImage-xxx-sdboot.bin? for akita?
