Or is your question.... When I install using the GUI app... I want it to install to my SD card by default?
The answer.. I don't know.. but please let me know if you find out.

Edit /etc/ipkg.conf and move the "dest sd" line to the top of all "dest" lines. That should do the trick IIRC

I don't necesarilly need to use the GUI app, but it'd be easier. I'll be getting a wireless card soon, and I've got a 1GB SD card that I need to fill up :-P

Thank you CoreDump, I'll try that when I get my wifi card.
