DebianOn is an effort to document how to install, configure and use Debian on some specific hardware. Therefore potential buyers would know if that hardware is supported and owner would know how get the best out of that hardware.

The purpose is not to duplicate the Debian Official Documentation, but to document how to install Debian on some specific hardware.

Important Note

Installation done from CD, using Squeeze netinstall. Squeeze kernel doesn't support onboard ethernet nor WiFi, so I connect to internet using a generic USB ethernet. After minimal Squeeze install, upgrade to Wheezy. After reboot to Wheezy with kernel 3.2.0-4, onboard ethernet worked.
