Could this be part of the .install file?

One debian for 770 and one for N800.

(or universal if that works for both).

That way no users would ever have to know which they are installing.

Also, there could be a note if no version is suitable for your device.

Just a thought. May be that the .install already supports that. If  
that's the case, my apologies for mentioning this.
