Patience. I am not checking email everyday, for another week
or so, because I am recovering from an appendectomy. The
infection was horrific, and the meds are whacking me. I'll be
myself after another week. Enough about me...

To answer your question: I think you are not being exactly precise
in following the guide.

The transfer script is very rudimentary. It probably is not
matching /mnt/flash/ in the output of the mount command, because
it is /mnt/flash, without the trailing '/' character.

Thanks for the reply. I don't mean to be pushy, and I'm sorry about your infection, hope you get well soon.

In any case, I tried using /mnt/flash instead of /mnt/flash/ but I'm getting the exact same error message.

Just to recap, I've tried the following commands:
sudo ./ttylinux-flash -l /mnt/cdrom/ /mnt/flash/ /dev/sdd/
sudo ./ttylinux-flash -l /mnt/cdrom/ /mnt/flash /dev/sdd/

Both give the same error message.
Again, I appreciate all the help given so far. I just don't know what I'm missing.
