here are more ideas how to start the Debian installer:

 * Put d-i kernel and netinst initramfs on the SD card (by using wget &
dd from the PC or the FreeRunner) in a way to uboot to boot them. Then
just override them during boot.

 * Start d-i kernel and netinst initramfs via kexec directly from a
running Linux on the FreeRunner (iff the FreeRunner kernel supports

 * Install Windows on the FreeRunner and use
http://goodbye-microsoft.com/ :-)

I’m wondering though how much RAM is left when we put a complete d-i
netinst into the initramfs.
