Unfortunately, it's not simple. At this time, the only effective way
to do it is to install Linux on another machine and "manually" move the
resulting file systems onto the SparQ. You'll also need to upgrade to
kernel version 2.0.35 or later to get the drivers you'll need to use
the SparQ.

Please note that the resulting system might not be terribly useable:
the SparQ is significantly slower than an internal disk - and there are
persistent reports of reliability issues with the drives.
