1. Download the image and the tftp server in the same directory.
2. Connect the serial AND network cables to the Solo48 unit. I used two different PCs for this; one for serial connection and other for ethernet connection. The network cable is connected to the WAN port (port on the left hand)
3. Start the serial telnet session and get to Redboot.
4. Start the tftp server on your PC.
5. Do the following commands;

fis init -f
load -v -r -b %{FREEMEMLO} linux.bin
fis create -e 0x80041000 -r 0x80041000 linux

6. Now make sure the boot script is setup to load linux
7. Issue the 'reset' command

And DD-WRT should be there.

Note: For some reason the units I worked with do not like to tftp load to the address 0x80041000 so i used the %{FREEMEMLO} and then in create command used the address 0x80041000
