it's pretty simple if you have a few simple tools and are not afraid to
crack the nokia open. Otherwise you will be left trying to netboot and
install the stupid thing.

Get yourself a torx screwdriver set and unscrew the 4 screws on the
bottom. The top should pull off and you can see the motherboard.

It might pull off a little hard but you should not break it ... there 
is just a little bit of sticky tape around the lip.

Now you'll have to lift the motherboard out and unscrew the screws 
that hold in the hard drive (it will be a 6-12 gig laptop drive) 

the hard drive will pull out just pull it away from the connector

Here is where the tools come in

for +-$5US you can get a laptop to 3.5" hard disk adapter

You plug the laptop hard disk into the adapter and plug it into a free
ide channel on a computer and use the regular procedure to write the
m0n0 image to it.

Optionally you can choose to swap out the hard drive for something solid

I chose a silicon tech solid state flash drive because it was cheap 
and was already a 2.5" laptop drive form factor

This is an 800mb model

The 64 megabyte models can be had for between $10-$30 on the internet
these days.

you could also use a cf to 2.5" ide adapter like this to replace the
hard drive

so you can use a standard CF card for you installation.

Anyway I hope this helps

currently have it running on a soekris box but recently aquired this IP110 from old stock at work.
Can I use the 5GB hard disk that comes with this unit?  Or must I use a IDE>CF kit?  Also I am
assuming I can use the Generic PC image.  Currently I've taken the 5GB disk and attached it to my
USB 2.5 enclosure from which I imaged the disk with the generic image, however I'm not sure if this
is the correct procedure or not with the Nokia's.
