Am I the only one who hasn't got his head around exactly what gets
updated where?

As I understand it, you can flash 3 things:

u-boot (the bootloader)
the kernel
the root filesystem

Should I think of u-boot as the OpenMoko version of Grub? In which
case why can't opkg update this?

opkg can also update the kernel and the root filesystem, right?
Advantages/disadvantages with the two approaches?

Does flashing the root filesystem wipe out /home?

If somebody provide me with the answers, I'll happily update the
Getting_Started page on the wiki...
