I was only asked for Kernel etc if the base installation was
interrupted and I had to return to the main menu. When I let it run all
the way through I wasn't asked for anything.
For the problems with network connection, if you can no longer ping
your NSLU2 on the static IP you should have assigned then you need to
set it again. The easiest way is to put the NSLU2 into upgrade mode
again via Reboot or reset button. Then load the official Linksys
firmware. Then use the supplied Linksys CD to find the NSLU2 and set
the IP or via the webgui if you can access it. Config you IP settings
and then flash again with the Debian Firmware.
I used a 2GB flash drive in port 1 and let the guided install partition
and format the stick. Partman created a 92MB swap partition and the
reset was used for /. It did seem to hang on 33% and I left it for a
few mins and it continued.
