well, if we could get nokia to support it natively (watching the dance some 
had to do to get it all running again at the latest ssu) it would be a bit 
more interesting. but so far your best of waiting each time a ssu update 
shows up in app manager, until whoever do those alternate boot systems can 
get back up to speed.

still, there is always that idea/plan for a community "distro"...

the problem really is that neither the debian package system nor nokia 
supports any official system for offloading onto some other storage.

until that time comes, there will be house of card like hacks lining up around 
the block...
