    Hopefully you have not made the same mistake that I did and got a class 10 SD card for your boot. Currently it is not well supported as the standard driver trys to put the SD host on the Pi into a mode it does NOT support and boot fails.

    As for an enclosure- I am using a travel soap box that I cut a few appropriate holes into. It is a nice fit.

    Haven't had that problem yet as it didn't come with an SD card so I have to get one - I plan on sticking to the compatibility guide listed on elinux.org.

    You are much wiser than I my friend...

    BTW: with the right cables, this thing ROCKS for the Pi: http://www.amazon.com/AT-Laptop-Dock.../dp/B004M17D62 HDMI display and USB touchpad and keyboard!! I think it can supply the power to the Pi also if done right.

    Very interesting. What other cables are necessary?

    Can save a few more bucks here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/AT-T-Motorol...item20c8266241

    For video:

    Micro HDMI Type D Female to Micro HDMI Type D Female to convert the MALE output of the dock to female.

    Micro HDMI Type D Male to HDMI Video connector male to attache from the adapter to the PI's HDMI output.
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/170828436831#ht_3824wt_1186

    For USB:

    Micro USB Male to Female Extension Data Cable to get the USB off the dockstation because it is tight with the hdmi out. It also lets you clip out the +5 feed from the dock station so you can go into the USB peripheral connector and not try to feed power into the device the wrong way.
    http://dx.com/p/micro-usb-male-to-fe...ck-20cm-123738

    Micro USB female to mini USB male to get up to MINI to feed the next adapter
    http://dx.com/p/micro-usb-female-to-...-adapter-59657

    Mini USB female to USB male to go from the mini to full sized USB. Wish I could have found a one step to do this but this was the cheapest way I could find.

    Hope that helps!

    I stole the SD/HC card from my daughter's camera (4GB) and fired up the Pi. I ran out of space pretty quick... I downloaded the OLA distribution but it's 600+MB zipped and I couldn't get the zip and dist in a 2G partition. I'd suggest you get a minimum of 8GB and enlarge the default 2G partition after installing the default distro. I'll have to see if I can figure out how to make it mount my WD NAS drive for lots of space.
