Hexxeh-rc3 is a "raspbian" disk image available from

Raspbian based on debian and optimized for best performance on the Raspberry Pi. Importantly, the hexxeh-rc3 image also supports UVC webcams, such as the lifecam cinema. I have performed the following changes to the installation. It seems to run

remove the desktop

apt-get remove xorg
apt-get remove lxde

set the time

apt-get install ntp fake-hwclock

update the system (requires reboot)

apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

load the software

apt-get install ffmpeg
apt-get install motion
apt-get install samba
apt-get install rcconf 

N.B. rcconf didn't do it on it's own; had to edit /etc/default/motion
