i'm just bored at work, mulling over some things in my head, and I wanted
to know what you all thought. obviously most of you (if not all) have
heard of the iopener 'hack' to make the machine useful to the rest of us
(if not, http://www.linux-hacker.net/iopener/).
what i'm wondering is how hard it would be, and how much 'good stuff'
could you put in an entire linux install that would be <16MB? (would you
need a swap at all with it?) i consider myself a linux novice, so i really
have no idea... and it would be an interesting project to try to 'roll my
own' linux for the first time.
perhaps sticking a zipdrive in there for file/page serving/etc? (cheaper
than a laptop drive) what, exactly, is feasible in 16mb?
i'd like to know what you guys think (and if there would be any takers for
such a project when i can justify spending the time/money on it).
