The instructions here  will get you through a Debian installation
on an NSLU2. However, what they won't do is impart the knowledge you
need to get out of trouble if you deviate from them accidentally or if
the installation goes wrong. Nor will they teach you how to maintain
your system securely, install samba and all the stuff you need for
file and print serving, etc.
On the surface that's not good Linux advocacy on my I know, but I am
trying to give you pause for thought before you dive on in and find
yourself swimming in water a little too deep for personal comfort.
.. but then it depends on a number of factors doesn't it? If the
original poster is competent in other disciplines, is keen to learn
Linux and is not dependent on his/her slug then it might be an ideal
way to learn.
However, on the surface I agree with you Marcel, as I can see a number
of pitfalls that might discourage a total beginner for good if they
encounter them under these circumstances.
