Some problems I had and resolved while "installing" debian
Some users may not be able to use the command
If you get an error when you in put this command you should make sure you have copied ext2.ko to /data/local
If you are using telnet to put debian on your phone and you get a socket error. Download terminal emulator from the market.
Open it and Type
Now navigate back to the telnet program and you should be able to connect
Because the insmod may not work for all of you I have modified Saurik's script which mounts the debian image.
This script will mount the debian image and put you into debian userland. This script should only be used if you were already able to get into debian userland following his instructions. Just change mount.txt to mount.sh and copy to a location on your sdcard. This script also assume you have saved ext2.ko in your phones local memory at /data/local
If you do not want to be put in debian userland you can use a text editor
and remove the line _ chroot $mnt /bin/bash from the script.
This is my first post on xda-developers. I have been reading the forums for a while now
since I got my first wm mobile phone a couple of years ago. I exorcised myself of the
wm devil some time ago however. I just wanted to thank all the developers out there for their
work on opening up this "open" phone.
Just to let you all know I only have a couple of months experience of using Linux on my desktop so I am not familiar
with all the Linux commands/terminology.

Reason: changed modprobe ext2.ko to the correct command modprobe ext2
