Waaaaaay ahead of you there old bean.....:)) You can actually replace
the ROM with a couple of FLASH ROMs (if you look at the pic on the
1Mb memory expansion board). But even with 1Mb of FLASH and 1Mb RAM,
the chances of getting Linux working are slim to none.....:((


Linux is like a Vorlon. It is incredibly powerful, gives terse,
cryptic answers and has a lot of things going on in the background.
