I realy don't see how to go on. For me it seems that the debootstrap will install gNS 3.0 but if it's not officially I would like the current version of gNewSense.

gNewSense doesn't have CD-using media for YeeLoong, so it won't be
different than without CDs.  If your YeeLoong has another distro
preinstalled, it can be used to format an USB disk with ext2 and put
there files needed to install gNewSense (using debootstrap or Parkes
installer when it'll be ready).

But if the netinstaller don't work so why do I need a formated USB drive?

Sorry for questioning like a kid but I realy would like to get that gNewSense on that Yeelong.
