I've installed 2 different versions of Ubuntu on my SD cards. Each of my SD cards is 4GB, and this is just large enough to hold the Ubuntu images.

I followed the instructions from here and here.

The first link references a Ubuntu wiki which details how to install a netbook edition of Ubuntu on ARM/OMAP processor-based systems. It is not beagle-specific. This image runs a little slowly, but not much slower than the SPEd image.

The second link references instructions for installing another image. This image is very minimal, and doesn't have a gui. There are instructions for installing a gui, which I did, with good success. As far as I can tell, even with the gui, this is the fastest image so far.
