What a procedure to hack that thing!

That's why I want to put straight Linux on it:)

As fun as hacking that thing would be, I might just buy one of the tiny
boards, but for the price if I brick the DNS-323 it would still be fun
and I wouldn't really care!

What's involved in building an embedded version of CentOS for a Soekris or similar
small mobo? Is that a feat worth considering or is the work involved huge?

Thanks a lot guys!
