A number of people on the list have helped me with hardware and software issues.

So here are the results:

 

To make a backup copy of the “overo-oe” directory on my UBUNTU 9.10 machine,

I logged in as root, (You have to set the root password first, with passwd.) and then

just copied all of the files to an external USB hard drive …

 

As for the power connector that mates with the Summit boards and others:

I ‘think’ it is a mouser part number 1710-2510. This is based on a post I read about the

Female connector size: barrel 2.5mm X 5.5mm

 

Hope this helps somebody else J
