Bo, I did that on the original RPi at the end of last month. You'll need 
a couple of the Debian -dev packages (yell if you want me to check my 
notes) but the important things are (a) you'll need at least 512Mb of 
RAM+swap available and (b) remember that you can run the IDE etc. over 
SSH- you don't need a local screen and keyboard.
