Tried re-installing Debian from the website, but no joy,
tomorrow I will visit my local Argos and purchase a 16gb Kingston flash drive, as I find I have more joy with them,
the one I have been trying is a (8gb Sanddisk.)

As always all Help, Ideas, Suggestions always appreciated
What are you using to power your Pi? Is it your own USB power supply or one from the supplier? I read somewhere the supply has to be of a certain amperage.

Just to confirm I didn't break the the crust on my pi trying it without the storage attached. Here I am posting from it via vnc.

Power supplys I've used that work are HTC Desire phone charger, my powered usb hub and works laptop docking station.

I've just got it!!! but nearly missed it...
I got an email from DHL several days ago telling me it was being delivered (arrival not specified).

09:00 this morning, door bell rings. Wife wakes me and kicks me out of bed to answer the door (I was mentally hung over after coding until the early hours of the morning). I'm surprised DHL waited as long as they did for me to answer.

Anyway, showed it to son number one and he looked disappointed (bloody kids of today), or confused. For now he's tasked with building the case out of lego.

Finally got mine today...

Has anyone here installed AROS?

If yes, are there any things or oddities I need to know?
