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. You can download it in two formats:

If you think that you've found a bug in the image please report it on the DebianApImageBugs page, make sure you include enough information for me to duplicate it. -- AdamShand

Info

This is a pre-built disk image/tarball for getting the FujitsuSytlistic1000 running as an AccessPOint. It has NoCatAuth, NAT, firewalls, and DHCP support right out of the box.

Cool features: It looks like it has IPv6 support, EXT3 for fast(er) reboots (well, it still takes 5 min with 40mb of ram in the system, but hey..). We are currently really looking for bugs with this system. If you find any see DebianApImageBugs.

Using the dd image

  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. Be VERY careful with the next command. If you use the wrong drive (if the 340 meg PCMCIA drive is not hde), you WILL fsck your other drive. This took up about 15 miuntes on a 166 MHz Toshiba Notebook

    {{{# bunzip2 -dc ImageFileName.bz2 | dd of=/dev/hde

Using the tar ball

  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}}}
