Wow! I'll have to try this out...

Look at the on-board installer - it should work better than how he described, with respect to storing settings and with respect to upgrading. Basically you'll have a pre-configured debian system when you finish.

I think the command is knx-install, but I could be wrong.

I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
If you don't know what it is, either ignore it or visit www.gnupg.org
My PGP key was last signed 6/10/2003 please download my key again if
it is more recent than your copy. If you use GPG, *please* talk to
me to sign it. The key is keyID E2B2CAD1 on pgp.mit.edu
