[GLLUG] OpenWRT reading recommendation

I should be getting my new Linksys WRT54GL tomorrow and my wife will be
wanting it installed to get her system online ASAP.

It looks from the OpenWRT site like one can install x-wrt, which is
developed in conjunction with OpenWRT and which has a handy web interface
for configuration.  And it's only 0.1Mb bigger than openwrt.  This has
some appeal.  Anyone have experience with x-wrt they'd like to share?

If I go straight cli openwrt, what do y'all recommend for an overview
document?  I found this for installation on the WRT54GL:

But that just gives step-by-step instructions for sample configuration,
whereas I would like an overview of how the system works internally so I
can understand what's going on.  Is this an adequate page for that:
(which links to: http://wiki.openwrt.org/OpenWrtDocs/NetworkInterfaces)

The manual (http://downloads.openwrt.org/kamikaze/docs/openwrt.html) seems
to be a little thin...
