Well, my arm machine (a buffalo linkstation pro) is sold as a network 
drive, has 128MBytes, it comes from the factory with a vendor provided 
stripped-down linux, and it has been hacked to run full-fledged debian, 
so it's not exactly a pda (in fact it's my personal 
mail/web/jabber/nfs/and various other things server).
Cross-compiling is too much of a hassle for me, since I'd have to 
reproduce the library environment of the lspro on the host machine, and 
I should also carefully study the documentation on cross-compiling ;-)
