A patient padawan reaches the goal...

...well, part of it anyway.

Thusfar, I did this:
- partition the drive
- format the partitions
- make a root file system (folders & mountpoints)
- mount /dev/sda3 to /media/sda3
- mount /dev/sda1 to /media/sda3/boot
- mount /dev/sda4 to /media/sda3/home
- make a Downloads in the /root folder (on disk)
- prep a variable to be used as prefix for the config
- hand-prepped netwoking and did a ping test
- extended the search path to include the drive as well
- downloaded grub-1.99 and checked the dependencies
- installed those
- installed grub
- unpacked a kernel (2.6.34 - since I had one on hand anyway)
- did the config/make/make modules/make install

Of course, this is by far nothing yet. Now I need to get all sorts of stuff in there as well, such as networking, security and so on...

But, a patient padawan reaches the goal...
