[Freedombox-discuss] Newbie help

I'm 71 and not a techhie, but I get the idea of FreedomBox and want to try it out.

I bought a Cubietruck and a 64GB micro-SD card.  Managed to put the Cubietruck together.  I have a Windows 7 system.  Successfully downloaded the F.B. Cubietruck emulation onto the card with Etcher.  Following the video on the freedombox.org homepage, I inserted the SD card, connected to my router, and powered on.  After half an hour, the ethernet still blinks green and red, and FWIW the Windows Network doesn't see the new machine.

Is the video's assumption that one has a working SBC first?  Does one have to boot the Cubietruck first?  Is it necessary to install Debian first?  I'm at a loss here.

Thanks for any help.   JON
