Here is the optware bash shell:
Extract data.tar.gz from the .ipk file, then extract data.tar.gz into a bash folder.
What do you mean by "wget" folder and "bash" folder?
I hate to be a noob, but I really don't know enough of Unix OSes to know what you're talking about with such vague instructions. :P
Don't I need ncurses installed for nano to work, even if I put it on the USB drive? Or is it pre-installed with OptWare?
Also, why do I need a loop mount, can't I just use SSH to put it onto my Kindle and install it?
If at all possible, could you write an amateur friendly tutorial for us? That'd be awesome.
