1. Install the "becomeroot" package that allows you to gain root access in xterm


2. Install xterm


3. Install openssh

In xterm (now available in the Extras menu) execute the following two commands:

	sudo gainroot
	apt-get install ssh

That's it. :)

Instructions here[1] if you want to setup password-less logins using public/private key and PuTTY.

To add the public key to the N800, ssh to the N800 as root using the default "rootme" password (no quotes). Or transfer the authorized_keys file via SD card.
