Maybe possible via the JTAG connection?

Re: Linux before the Pi arrives

Appreciate your quick answer Stuart - I will download a give the live CD option a go.

As UBuntu is not an option for Pi at this very moment, will I be able to give the live cd a go for debian too? I guess I shall have to go find out for myself!

Thanks again,

Re: Pre-programmed SD cards?

...as was alexxj's answer.

In order to keep the 'competition' at bay, it is imperitive that the foundation make pre-programmed SD card available before the hardware starts to ship - so, what, 3 weeks from now max?

If the intention is for user to solder there own connector, then how does this effect warranty (assuming there is any warranty1!).
