Yes, you can. By default you should have an app named 'Terminal' on
your ...errr... 'Desktop' after booting up. It's rather inconvenient, so
I'd recommend hooking your FR up to a pc via USB and using ssh to
connect to it for writing configs or scripts etc.
I don't know what you mean by 'Dialogue screen' though. But maybe you're
having this problem:

Maybe you don't wait long enough? As already said the g_ether messages
are no problem. The jffs message might be a filesystem corruption.

Isn't it mounted under /media/card ? If not a
'mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /media/card' should do the trick.

Connect your Freerunner to the internet and on a command prompt
(Terminal on the phone, or more convenient: ssh over USB) enter 'opkg
install' (Link
taken from the download button on the webpage you posted).
To get your freerunner connected via USB check out this wiki article: or use Wifi or a GPRS
connection or your uSD card calling opkg with the path to the file on
the uSD card instead of the URL.
