What do you mean by 'getting the sizes correct'?
Can any mortal linux user get this done, or does one have to be a *NIX-Guru?
The rom image is loaded onto the root partition of the flash rom, so it must be smaller than the partition size.
Can anyone do it? probably but you might be better of trying to create a normal rom first and it that works start tweaking the filesystem by replacing the Sharp one with debian-arm.
The Japanese Sharp site has the root filesystem tarballs for the Cxx0 models, they are probably the same for the Cxx00 models. I think they have a script in them to create the rom image, if not you could get it from OpenEmbedded or possibly the pdaX or cacko guys.
