I am not able to install any extras.  I've attempted to install from a 
file on the memory card, which I've transferred via USB, but it tells 
me the packages are of the wrong type.  Even though I'm "pretty sure" I 
have the correct packages.

Whenever I attempt any internet access (repository access or web 
browsing), it fails to resolve names and/or waits forever.

This is an uncommon problem?  Do flashes fail often?  Should I try 
re-flashing?  I guess I'll check the md5 on the file I flashed.
I don't find an md5sum on the maemo download page; can someone confirm 
that mine is correct:
