    v3 v4  
    1717Since this is a dedicated machine with the sole purpose of running [DebianPackage:cereal], I chose to install debian `lenny` (cereal is not in `etch`).
    1818
     19I did a basic debootstrap-style install (similar to that of [wiki:marcos.mayfirst.org]), but i added etch to `/etc/apt/sources.list` so i could track `linux-modules-2.6.18-xen-686`, which will be needed for the `8250` module for the serial port.  I also installed `udev` to manage the creation of the device node for `/dev/ttyS1`.  This is a ridiculously heavyweight solution for a simple task, but it seems simpler to maintain (since `udev` is becoming ubiquitous).
