One further hint - if you have any SD card problems, try slowing the SD
clock down and/or adjusting the drive for it. I have an otherwise
excellent 8G SD card (class 2 I think) that has to have the clock slowed
- if not I get all sorts of corruption and weird things happening - with
a slightly slower clock, its rock solid. Currently I am using a 16G
class 4 card and that does not need a slow clock so YMMMV.
Details are on the wiki.
