I've got a Chinese aPad running Android 1.5, how do I get it to be recongnised by Android SDK? I want to do adb hacks as recommended by this answer. Pointers to using adb also welcome.

Is the aPad "Google approved"? I thought it didn't pass Google's Comaptibility Test Sheet. – Matthew Read Apr 4 '11 at 13:18
@Daniel, my bad. – Oxwivi Apr 4 '11 at 19:14
@Matthew, no idea. – Oxwivi Apr 4 '11 at 19:15

Assuming that the PC you've got the SDK installed on is running Windows, the first step to getting your device recognized by the SDK/ADB is having the right Windows USB drivers for your device installed.

See this previous question for more on getting hold of the right ADB drivers for your device: Substitute Win7 USB drivers for ADB mode
