Hrm.. wait a minute. Let me try and recall all the steps I did.
1. ssh ed over USB
2. /etc/init.d/qpe stop
3. ./install.sh all
error at stopped at rdate -s ntp.berlin.... coz ntp.berlin was not
resolved by my office DNS (nslookup failed to find it too)
4 skipped 'time' and did a
./install.sh debian apt fso configuration kernel unmount
this got stuck at
P: Configuring helper cdebootstrap-helper-apt
E: Internal error: install
5.Got into my home network.
./install.sh time debian apt fso configuration kernel unmount
(skipping partition to save the .deb cache that was already downloaded)
no rdate error but cdebootstrap error persists
I never thought the ntp thing was an issue, but since it worked for
you, I might have predisposed my installation to failure at step 3
