Got the Pi!

My raspberry pi arrived today, along with the SD card and sleek green case. As quick as I could, I uploaded the compiled freedombox image to the disk, plugged it in, applied power, and…. nothing happend. Hmm.

A little digging turned up these great newbie links:

http://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/installation/installing-images/linux.md
http://qdosmsq.dunbar-it.co.uk/blog/2013/06/noobs-for-raspberry-pi/

As I get time, I will upload the NOOBS software to the SD card and verify I can boot with that. That should give me practice burning images to the SD card. I need to verify if the problem is the image or just my inexperience at copying images to the SD card.
