+If booting from the USB stick fails because u-boot in the Dreamplug doesn't
+recognize the FAT partition on your stick, it may be because the partition
+type code isn't one of the FAT variants that u-boot recognizes. If this
+happens, plug the USB stick into a Linux machine and use your favorite
+partition editor (fdisk works) to change the type of partition 1 to something
+like '6' which is simple FAT16, then write the change. This won't change
+the *contents* of the partition, but it will allow u-boot to recognize it.

To set things up to boot from the internal microSD card, once you're logged into
the system booted from root on USB stick you can use:
- /sbin/copy2dream
+ /usr/sbin/copy2dream
Note that if you don't have a reasonable system date and time set in the
DreamPlug before running this command, you may see a long stream of warnings
