I am following the guide here http://wiki.neilandtheresa.co.uk/Titchy_Linux/Installing
. I have tried the debian-40r3-arm-businesscard.iso and debian-40r3-arm-netinst.iso with the same results. My progress gets past the language options and past the missing kernel modules but fails when looking for the cd-rom.
I can get back to the main menu and detect/configure my wireless card. This works fine and then I try as described in the guide, "Load installer components from CD" and install the "choose-mirror" component which works but when the installer tries to load the choose-mirror component it complains about not being able to read/find the cd. Next I drop down to ash shell and ls /cd-rom. Nothing is there. Am I missing something?
Yes you are missing something.
I'm afraid I can't tell exactly what the problem is from your post. I missed a fair number of things in my first attempts at Titchy.
I suspect that dropping into the shell is a very bad idea!!!!
I would strongly advise you to use the business card iso and leave the netinst one alone!
Here's the main thing that went wrong for me. I was certain that I had configured my wireless network correctly! I was wrong, several times... Please when you have 'configured' the network, go back and redo it.
When you do, you will be offered the choice of using DHCP or not. Choose NOT!
and then go through the options to put in a suitable IP address for your network.
Not doing this wasted vast amounts of time for me.
If you do this and get to the next stage: basically take the default choices...
Another tip is to do a bit of reading up on 'tab completion'. If you get an idea of what it does you'll make very rapid progress in the post-install stage.
A final tip take a good look through this thread Debian On C3xxx (merged Topics), ... & the state of the art
and when you come across any post by ZDevil click on his gallery in his signature.
Good luck and I hope you don't suffer as much sleep-deprivation as I did
