    I'd like to use my DS as a very small SSH client; I've heard of DSVNC, but I need SSH, not VNC.

    Problem is, I can't find a DSLinux ROM. I've found instructions on how o flash your DS, but that's not what I want to do, also, those require additional hardware.
    I'd like to run it like a normal DS game; the only DS hacking things I have are an AceKard and accompanying Micro SD card.

    So, is this possible? Would I need to have an EXT partition on the SD card? How would I arrange this?

    Go grab http://dslinux.org/builds/dslinux-dldi.tgz, and unpack it to the root of your MicroSD.

    Run dslinux.nds from your Acekard's menu/loader.

    No repartitioning needed, dslinux's filesystem lives in the folder called linux. Make sure you turn off the DS by running the command poweroff or you will corrupt the filesystem.

    Already has an SSH client included.
