Alchemy Installation Error: "Upgrade are failed!"

    When attempting to load the Alchemy v1.0 firmware onto my WRT54G (hw v3.1), I received a big, red "Upgrade are failed!" reminiscent of "All your base".

    The download page says to install Alchemy upon an older, smaller firmware version and to reflash with tftp.

    I can't find an older, smaller firmware on Linksys' site nor on LI. Could somebody point me to an appropriate firmware and explain how reflashing via tftp works?

    I realize that this is second nature to most of you guys, but I can't find any HOWTO docs dealing with this; your help is appreciated.

    Tried the DD-WRT beta firmware instead of the Alchemy v1.0 firmware. DD-WRT installed through the web interface without a hitch.

    Found out that the router crashes under DD-WRT beta 22 when surveying for other networks. However, I have successfully installed Alchemy from DD-WRT, which I could not do from the standard-issue Linksys firmware. Survey functions correctly under Alchemy v1.0.
