Very, I'm afraid.
In fact, my osimg is very similar to the sargebook standard image --- I just
recompiled the kernel to include swap support (which is harder than it looks).
Basic instructions (I know you know this, I just want to spell it out a bit):
- format a CF card with #1 as a FAT16 filesystem, #2 as an ext3 filesystem.
- remember to put a journal on the ext3 filesystem with tune2fs -J.
- put SargeBook_v5_os.img on #1 called os.img.
- uncompress the userland of your choice onto #2 (such as SargeBook_v5.tgz)
- insert card into *left* slot of netbook.
- leave *right* slot empty.
Particular gotchas is the ext3 journal thing, as it won't boot without it, and
that the boot loader thinks the left slot is #0 and the right slot is #1, but
Linux thinks it's the other way round, so if you have any cards in the right
slot Linux won't find the CF card in the left slot.
The card will appear as /dev/hda or not at all.
Do join the linux-7110-psion mailing list --- I'm sure all the NetBSD people
are sick of this by now (or are giggling quietly to themselves)...
