Beagleboard stuff being so much fun, but the addons out there cost way, way too much. I plan on making some addons pretty soon. Already have parts on the way.
Im planing a LCD board of course, and a SPI board. If anyone has any suggestions please comment.

Ok in this video you will see how to Make directories, mount devices, copy files, extract tar.gz files and syncing the card.
Short Version would be:
sudo mkdir /tmp/root sudo mkdir /tmp/boot sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /tmp/boot sudo mount /dev/sdb2 /tmp/root sudo cp MLO /tmp/boot sudo cp u-boot.bin /tmp/boot sudo cp uImage /tmp/boot sudo cp boot.scr /tmp/boot sync sudo tar -xvz -C /tmp/root -f xMt1-image-beagleboard.tar.gz sync sudo umount /tmp/boot sudo umount /tmp/root Remove SD card and place in beagleboard xm and enjoy!
