Thanks, exactly what I was hoping for. Is all in the default 
repository's or did You have to hunt it down?

My plan was to mount the sd card as /dev and use 'ipkg -d /dev' to 
install all dev related. But I'm not sure about all needed to tie it all 
up (PATH, lsconfig etc).

Will try Your way insted, it's proven and I'm not really going to switch 
sd-card (unless to get a bigger one, but that uncommon enough so a 
little extra work is no problem).

Now off to flash 2007.11 and getting on to it.

Thanks again /LaH
