I am RaptorBoi from Brisbane, Australia, and I rather enjoy using Linux.
At the moment I am at Griffith University studying Electrical Engineering, and I am looking to specialise in embedded systems.
To be honest, I have many questions about running Linux on embedded systems and I am on a project now for a company in Japan where I am to drop Linux onto an ARM9 NAS board to make it more useful than just a network attached storage device.
I know about U-Boot and I can install Debian Linux by booting the system via TFTP, and I can install Linux easily... if I have an internet connection.
My question is, how can I install Debian WITHOUT the use of an internet connection. I am looking into downloading the armel flavour of Debain and using that as a source, but I have no idea on how to install it onto an embedded system as it has no CD/DVD drive. It only has an ethernet port, 2 USB-2.0 ports and a serial UART port.
Sorry about the super long question guys, but I have been stuck on this for a week now.
I have also posted this in the embedded forums, just in case an admin goes nuts at me :s
Thanks heaps for any info guys
