...making Linux just a little more fun!

The US Distributor of this product appears to be Hightech Global ( http://www.hitechglobal.com/Boards/Armadillo9.htm), who is selling it for $645. In my humble opinion, that price is substantially too high. For comparison, the apparently much more powerful, physically much smaller Gumstix Verdex XL6P ( http://gumstix.com/store/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=27&products_id=178) costs $169, plus perhaps another $100 for various expansion boards--you'd want at least the $24 VX Breakout board, which has the host USB port on it. (I'm not affiliated in any way with Gumstix, nor have I ever purchased any of their products. I'm thinking seriously about it, though.)
Just thought folks should know.

"The standard development setup should be similar to the one shown in this picture."
The picture of the standard setup is missing.

That's right; it's the standard setup, so everybody can just look at their own and see it.
Darn it, I'd already fixed that one... or I thought I did, at the same time as I'd fixed the misspelling in Russell King's name (he was extremely huffy in pointing it out, insisting that it was an insult and a sign of "not caring about the person in question" [laugh]). In any case, it's fixed now - thanks!
