Please let me know about what you find !

The memory issues will be overcome soon. I'm just starting to design a 
Linux PCB and find that I likely will have 32MByte memory (even though I 
just need some 6 MB), as there are no smaller DDR.2 chips.

Do you think it's really essential to have the compiler run on the 
target ? Cross-compiling should be much easier to do and a lot easier to 
work with for the users. (Is anybody really supposed to write programs 
on his PDA ? )
