Thanks for the replies, but what I really need is a very pratical
evaluation of the situation. Do I say yes to buying many DoCs or do I
use simple IDE flash disks instead which I already got working and
booting. If I see there's still a lot to be done regarding making DoCs
work with Linux then no problem. The product has to be out in the
coming months, not in two years. So this is why I was asking if there's
floating around a HOWTO of some sort or is this all 'still in the lab'
so to speak.
