"no route to host"
DHCP server has given the 770, which is reasonable; my 
local subnet is 192.168.110.x.
Host attempting to ssh into 770 gets many response from other hosts 
ping -b
Since I haven't set up any user accounts on the 770, I don't know what 
to expect when I ssh into the 770.

I'll put openssh in my ever growing list of things to try.  :-)

It appears that it is set up to automatically use 
http://catalogue.tableteer.nokia.com/certified/     mistral user
http://catalogue.tableteer.nokia.com/non-certified/ mistral user
Not so?  I guess not, it is clearly not working for me.  I'll try 
manually entering some other repositories.  Thanks for pointing me 
toward the complete repository list in the wiki.  If I just had a term, 
I could probably get it going.  Even better, if I could ssh into the 
770 and use a real keyboard.

I will.  IF I ever get the thing figured out.

I could deal with the scattered packages in scattered repositories.  I 
was speaking of the trouble I've had
1) getting a term up
2) getting ANY packages installed and working
3) getting access to repositories.

Wouldn't it be nice...... if there were a flashable image that had 
term, mc, and ssh built in.

Willie, ONWARD!  Through the fog!
