I have a 2GB card, and following your wiki, I've partitioned it with 2

First of all: which wiki? It's plenty of them...

Is it possible to install KDE in a n800? Not in my n770

Anyway, how are you trying to install it? If you do it via the Application
Manager there's an option to check the size of the package you're going to
install (check Application details > Installing in order to take into
account also the depending libraries).

I'm new to maemo and to n800 gadget, and I think I already know what I

If you get only one Linux partition you won't have a FAT partition to share
files with Windows boxes. If you get only one FAT partition you won't be
able to boot from MMC.

/dev/mmcblk0p1 is by default going to be mounted at /media/mmcX.

New apps are going to be installed at /usr

3.-) Good set of n800 links? I already know maemo.org,
