    Well, you will need to first connect your mobile phone to internet either via a internet data plan or wifi and then insert a micro sd card as well. After that go to App manager and enable all repositories. After that install rootsh and Leafpad from the App manager. After that open x-terminal and type
    root
    apt-get update
    apt-get install nitdroid-installer
    And then confirm with "y" 2 times.
    Close x-terminal when packages is installed.
    After nitdroid is installed on your mobile phone, simply launch it and then follow the instructions given in it to install android 2.3 gingerbread.

    Note that you wont be able to call on your cell phone with android installed. Only sms can be sent and received on your mobile phone.

    There is a complete guide given on the official site on how to install Meego on Nokia n900, that you can refer from this link. However, note that you should have the PR1.3 firmware installed on your n900 to dual boot meego with its maemo operating system. Hope that helps you out.
