Check maemo.org (look for SDK). You need a linux computer (preferable
running debian). You have to download around 0.5 gigs of packages but
it is relatively straightforward. There is a good tutorial on how to
do it.

Now that the N810 has a physical keyboard more people will be inclined
to run emacs on it. I personally run it only for remember and when
connecting remotely into it. 

On the other hand I have read that emacs23 has support for this type
of devices, but I have not compiled it yet.

The 2008 apps are still being few and scarce. For that reason I have
set up a dual boot in my N800.

One more issue. You won't have space in the internal memory to install
it. You need to format a card using ext2, and then mount it (internal
or external) and symlink to it. Alternatively you can install the OS
in an external card and boot into it (my preferred choice).
