Requires: 2 gig (preferably 4 gig or more) SD card.
You should gunzip the image (I’ve made that mistake!).
You must resize the partition after you flash it.

Flashing the card is easy, too: http://elinux.org/RPi_Easy_SD_Card_Setup
Want to know more? Here’s where I documented my steps while creating this image.
Table-top-sized demo Strowger switch. Awwww yeah.
RaspberryPi is in hand \m/ So what’s the first thing I’m going to do with it? Install Asterisk, naturally.
I first fiddled with the Fedora Remix for Raspberry Pi, but, I was finding that I was getting a bunch of errors. Namely, I was getting something like a “long write” warning/failure (which may be specific to my SD card, I don’t know). So I didn’t give up, I tried running the Fedora 17 nightly (with instructions) on my RasPi. Welp… Same thing. Seems as though the most favored distro, and the distro (currently) recommended by raspberrypi.org, is Debian.
So, I haven’t really been a Debian user. I might’ve installed it 8 years ago, but, that’s the most I ever did. So I’m also loading up with some notes about what was different for me as a mostly CentOS/RHEL/Fedora guy. And of course! My Asterisk build
