I just used a flash frive in place of the laptop hard disk that was in
ip120 already. you could use any ide-flash device ....load it up with
generic-pc image and then plug it into the ide interface on the ip120.
boot it up and plug a serial cable into the console port
it took almost 10 minutes from start to finish.
I took pictures of everything step by step if you're interested.
