Ok, my step-by-step installation guide is here:

Concerning daily usage, I'm using my FR for a year now as my daily and
only phone (i.e. I have no other mobile phone at all); I love it as it
is and never ever want to use another mobile phone which does not has:

- Linux or FreeBSD as Operating System
- X11, xterm, ...
- full SSH access to the system via USB network
- resistive touch screen (to be able to hit a single pixel)

Hopefully my FR will last until some new approach in that direction
shows up; thx

People who hate Microsoft Windows use Linux but people who love UNIX use FreeBSD.
