I am a programmer from the Netherlands. I don't have much Linux experience. Anyway, I've succeeded in starting up the Debian root image and connecting it to the internet. It was hard, but I managed. I've documented my experience and put it in the page GettingStartedLong. It's especially written for Windows users without Linux experience.
