Debian and the Beagle Board

After having read about the board a bit and getting courious, at LinuxTag 2008 i could try the real hardware for the first time. They had a demo running which showed a full Enlightenment desktop and everything seemed quite fast. I would guess the performance is similar to a P3 1GHz. The demo was based on OpenEmbedded, but with a system that is as fast as a few year old desktop system, i would of course prefer to run Debian.
For those wondering what the Beagle Board is:
- based on the TI OMAP 3530 with 128MB RAM and 256MB NAND
- HDMI (DVI-D) and S-Video output
- USB 2.0 Host and OTG
- can be powered by USB
