Getting somewhere, got ubuntu copied onto the sdcard, got adb shell running and then:
bootubuntu: cannot create /data/local/mnt/etc/hosts: directory nonexistent
READY TO ROCK AND ROLL BABY!

chroot: can't execute '/bin/bash': No such file or directory
Shutting down Ubuntu
umount: can't umount /data/local/mnt/dev/pts: No such file or directory
umount: can't umount /data/local/mnt/proc: No such file or directory
umount: can't umount /data/local/mnt/sys: No such file or directory
umount: can't umount /data/local/mnt: Invalid argument
Looks like bin/bash isnt working for some reason, and the bootubuntu doesnt drop me to a bash prompt! Any ideas?
