It might help - if it turns out that I can establish a usb-connection 
between the tablet and the Android partition of the computer.  The 
battery of the tablet soon runs out of steam and also the tablet appears 
to be very sensitive to elevated temperatures.  If I do my Internet 
surfing on my computer and then copy (via a usb-connection) relevant 
items to the tablet, it may compensate for some of the tablet's 

The quoted Android install instructions have uncovered yet another 

My current Debian 5.0 is based on kernel 2.6.28; Android (1.6) uses a 
version of kernel 2.6.29.  I believe that my current identification of 
devices - /dev/hda..../dev/hdd - is scheduled to be replaced by /dev/sda, 
etc. (for reasons that are well beyond my comprehension).

Perhaps this has happened in the version of the kernel that my tablet 
uses.  If so, then the tablet and my current computer OS may have 
different ideas about what is meant by "/dev/sda1".
