[maemo-users] Getting Easy-Debian to work

thanks and yes I did some further refreshing of my understanding of what 
chroot does.  I have to assume that the easy-debian "app" does not 
modify any of the files in the "parent" OS/file system while easy-debian 
is running. Is that correct?

One artifact of my having installed  easy-debian is that, apparently, 
the data base which I painstakingly created for the multilist app got 
blown away somehow. Now I need to see if I can find where multilist 
normally stores its databases to see if  the database is still there or 
moved somewhere else in the filesystem.

Unfortunately and unwisely I did not perform an IT backup prior to doing 
the easy-debian install. This leads me to think that a great app to have 
on the IT is one that saves a complete image, say,once a day, of the IT 
storage contents to a network based storage service such as that 
provided by Amazon Web Services with their Simple Storage Service (s3).

Best Regards,
