Once I get my phone up and running I'll give it a go - I've been
following the discussion about oe-classic/oe-core with interest, so I am
willing to help out if I can.

Ah, right, in other words connecting the device (my phone) via usb *is*
possible, right? If so, I presume this "usb0" interface acts in a
similar fashion as my "eth0" for example (ifconfig, route etc can be
applied to it), right? Quite a revelation to me this! How do I get it
connected on the "host" side (on my PC on which the usb is used) - do I
see a similar adapter on it as well? How does that work then?

I'll check that at first opportunity - is it possible that *might* be
the reason I am not getting anywhere with my console-image rootfs? I
haven't checked the inittab there ... will do that when I get home tonight!

So, I presume this usbnet is a point-to-point adapted, is it? Do I have
to set up special routing (i.e. with route add etc) for it? Do I have to
give it an ip address from the net I am on my host PC or is this different?
