That's normal.  You run the flasher as root, then power off your N800,
plug the USB cable, then power on the N800.  It will start talking to
the flasher during its boot process.

You can also hold down the Home key on the N800 while it's booting, to
make sure it waits for the flasher.

I am.  On Ubuntu 6.10.

You'll find creativity working hand in hand with engineering. It will feel
strange and you might feel like things are out of control. Relax - they are.
