I've tried to install Debian via a USB to SATA adapter per the instructions at http://mybookworld.wikidot.com/forum/t-30649/my-fast-and-perfect-setup-of-debian-lenny-into-my-500gb-world-book, but my MBWE won't boot up.
My board looks like the one at Martin Hinner's site, http://martin.hinner.info/mybook/pictures.php, but I am looking for advice on how to turn those four holes into a serial port. I'm not experienced with building a computer, but could solder a connector in if I could find one. Does anyone know if there is a particular part I can order that can be soldered to the board? Can anyone recommend a cable to connect this to my laptop? Must it be a serial cable or can it be a USB phone cable?
Thanks in advance!
