Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

We could use arm packages from debian, right? (likely some Armel ones too)
1)By the way, how do you plug your RJ45 with that? you got only hdmi, mini and a regular usb.
2) second question, in the pic attached, if I understand well, you do not need an external dc power supply with that? it gets power from USB or HDMI cable
it could be so great to make a debian stable squeeze server from this mk808 possible
The packages will not be the problem, the problem will be to get all the hardware running, as stated in the article I linked to.
You need an external USB network adapter if you want to connect with RJ-45. That is why it is important to get all the hardware running, so that you can use the inbuilt wireless adapter.
It gets power over USB.
wireless I dont like that. To me it is slow and easily breakable.
usb power thats realyl a great cool thing.
I think that it exists some mini-usb to rj45 adapters ...
besides, if it works for ubuntu, might work for debian.
but you know, my experience with debian is still same. you buy a new pc and you fight like a madman to get the hardware working during weeks if you havent much time to spend on taht.
You are used from x86 installations that the distribution comes with a pre-compiled kernel. This is not true for ARM distributions, you need a kernel that is specially compiled for your specific computer. If you then have devices in that machine that need proprietary drivers you are up to a real fight with the hardware, installing Debian on x86 is a mere joke against that.
