This document goes hand in hand with the DebianLinuxAccessPoint page. Once your image is created this shows you how to load the image onto a FujitsuStylistic1000. A very beta image is [http://www.personaltelco.net/download/warez/debian-ap-image-20011112.tar.bz2 now available]. -- AdamShand

  1. Put drive in laptop, it should show up as /dev/hde (if it doesn't you'll need to adjust the rest of the document accordingly).
  2. Format the disk (if you don't have cfdisk, normal fdisk will do just fine):

    # cfdisk /dev/hde I set my partition table up like this and it seems to work fairly well. {{{hde1 Boot Primary Linux 299.93

hde2 Primary Linux swap 41.15}}}

  • Format the filesystem (we'll upgrade to EXT3 later):

    # mke2fs /dev/hde1

  • Mount the drive:

    # mount /dev/hde1 /mnt

  • Untar the image onto the drive (note the image is compressed with bzip2 so it will require a recent version of tar and the bunzip2 utility), on my laptop this takes 2 or 3 minutes:

    # tar Ixvf /mnt/debian-ap-image-yyyymmdd.tar.bz2 -C /mnt

  • Chroot into the mount point so that you can

    # chroot /mnt

  • Update the filesystem to support EXT3:

    # tune2fs -j /dev/hde1

  • Make the image bootable with grub:

--- Bugs with 11/28 image ---

  • DNS Server doesn't load upon bootup
  • DHCP Server doesn't load upon bootup
  • Screen doesn't turn off (might be my bios settings)
  • How do you make grub bootable? (without loading lilo first and then booting and choosing grub)
  • Needs update to 2.4.16 (includes Ext3 now)
  • Add simple batch file or configuration to switch to bridging instead of nat
    • brctl addbr br0
    • ifconfig eth0
    • ifconfig wlan0
    • brctl addif br0 wlan0
    • brctl addif br0 eth0
    • brctl stp br0 off
    • ifconfig br0 up
    • pump -i br0
