I am successfully running it on the DBAu1100 board, so I am most
sure it works on the 1200 board too. No worries on that part.

You might want to try an NFS mount first, before loading a root
filesystem on the Flash memory that's part of the board.
Setup a root filesystem on a workstation and export it by means
of NFS. You might want to take a look at debootstrap (Debian
GNU/Linux), but there do exist an almost infite amount of other
ways to do just that. Probably an obvious note, but I like to
make it anyway: make sure you use mipsel binaries!!
Next you start from YAMON in a way like this:
go . ip=10.42.69.2 nfsroot=10.42.69.1:/opt/debianfs/ rw
Of course you can use any IP address you like and the
'/opt/debianfs/' is only a suggestion to where the just created
root filesystem resides on your workstation.
