Unable to do a *n?x highlight and copy manoever using the XO in order
to give you the _exact_ output....
in response to
$ mount
one of the out put lines is 
mtd0 on / type jffs2 (rw,noatime)

mtd0 does NOT show up in the /dev directory.

So the question becomes: what is mtd0? 

the equivalent response on a debian box yields /dev/hda1 instead of
mtd0 so I would assume that mtd0 is the storage device.
