Well, after all that messing about, I've got ARMedslack on a SD card. Again, there was a little hitch with cfdisk, can't remember the actual wording, but it refused to do the partitioning. So I used gparted instead. Haven't decided what I going to use this SheevaPlug for, there's a few possibilities. I was more interested in installing ARMedslack, than any practical use. But I'm sure I'll think of something to do with it. Here's the obligatory screenshot (the white line isn't hiding anything, I touched the mouse button).

    Nice. Glad to see you're up and running again.

    I've got a real urge to play with something ARMy.

    Just out of interest. What's the output of 'free' look like on that thing? How much of that 512M DRAM have you actually got to play with?

    I haven't got it running at the moment, but I think about half is available, but there's the USB socket and card slot to play with as well. So it's quite versatile. And relatively "green".

    No, ARMedslack is only running in the terminal. I haven't got round to trying any DE/WMs on it yet, I'll do it via VNC sometime.
