n450: Add WEBTITLE and boilerplate README
The WEBTITLE will be used to publish the BSP on the Yocto Project website. Add a boilerplate README including the Yocto Project compliance information for the 1.3 release. Signed-off-by: Darren Hart <dvhart@linux.intel.com>

1This README file contains information on building the meta-n450
2BSP layer, and booting the images contained in the /binary directory.
3Please see the corresponding sections below for details.

53I. Building the meta-n450 BSP layer
54=======================================
55
56In order to build an image with BSP support for a given release, you
57need to download the corresponding BSP tarball from the 'Board Support
58Package (BSP) Downloads' page of the Yocto Project website.
59
60Having done that, and assuming you extracted the BSP tarball contents
61at the top-level of your yocto build tree, you can build an n450
62image by adding the location of the meta-n450 layer to
63bblayers.conf, along with the meta-intel layer itself (to access
64common metadata shared between BSPs) e.g.:
65
66 yocto/meta-intel \
67 yocto/meta-intel/meta-n450 \
68
69Configure your build to build for the n450 machine in your local.conf file:
70
71 MACHINE ?= "n450"
72
73You should then be able to build an n450 image as such:
74
75 $ bitbake core-image-sato
76
77At the end of a successful build, you should have a live image that
78you can boot from a USB flash drive (see instructions on how to do
79that below, in the section 'Booting the images from /binary').
80
81As an alternative to downloading the BSP tarball, you can also work
82directly from the meta-intel git repository. For each BSP in the
83'meta-intel' repository, there are multiple branches, one
84corresponding to each major release starting with 'laverne' (0.90), in
85addition to the latest code which tracks the current master (note that
86not all BSPs are present in every release). Instead of extracting
87a BSP tarball at the top level of your yocto build tree, you can
88equivalently check out the appropriate branch from the meta-intel
89repository at the same location.
90
91
92II. Booting the images in /binary
93=================================
94
95This BSP contains bootable live images, which can be used to directly
96boot Yocto off of a USB flash drive.
97
98Under Linux, insert a USB flash drive. Assuming the USB flash drive
99takes device /dev/sdf, use dd to copy the live image to it. For
100example:
101
102# dd if=core-image-sato-n450-20101207053738.hddimg of=/dev/sdf
103# sync
104# eject /dev/sdf
105
106This should give you a bootable USB flash device. Insert the device
107into a bootable USB socket on the target, and power on. This should
108result in a system booted to the Sato graphical desktop.
109
110If you want a terminal, use the arrows at the top of the UI to move to
111different pages of available applications, one of which is named
112'Terminal'. Clicking that should give you a root terminal.
113
114If you want to ssh into the system, you can use the root terminal to
115ifconfig the IP address and use that to ssh in. The root password is
116empty, so to log in type 'root' for the user name and hit 'Enter' at
117the Password prompt: and you should be in.
118
119----
120
121If you find you're getting corrupt images on the USB (it doesn't show
122the syslinux boot: prompt, or the boot: prompt contains strange
123characters), try doing this first:
124
125# dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdf bs=1M count=512
