Then CentOS would be great with enough flash storage and a 586 CPU.

Maybe VIA nano-ITX or mini-ITX boards are also an interesting
"platform"? Besides that these boards have more power than Geode
boards, their Padlock stuff is interesting if you are going to use it
for anything that involves crypto. E.g. the latest generation of
Padlock has dedicated logic for AES encryption, hashing, and Montgomery
multiplication. Though, I don't know if anyone has backported the
kernel modules, and the OpenSSL patches, to support Padlock to the
CentOS kernel.
