Bummer - my installation of the Maemo SDK on my PC didn't work (I think)
Instead of following the steps from:

And as I recall, other steps from the tutorial didn't work neither...

So I guess I just have to start over, doing things step by step as 
stated in the tutorial.

I kinda thought I could use the LiveCD

Moreoever, I guess this is for maemo 1 (?)...
