Trying to setup the connection from the desktop machine I get:

iptables -A POSTROUTING -t nat -j MASQUERADE -s
sysctl -w net.ipv4.ip_forward=1
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1
ifconfig usb0 netmask
SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
usb0: unknown interface: No such device
SIOCSIFNETMASK: No such device
SIOCGIFADDR: No such device

- the USB device is not visible it seems . .

Using "Boot" I see "Reading from data" and numbers clicking over but it 
just goes back to the menu after that.  If I use reboot, I get the 
hanging problem.

I have never installed Qi so it must be u-boot - should I install Qi?
