Sort of, it'll run on a small board having a Geode-CPU (266MHz) loading
it's OS and program from flash memory (CF).

The only task is to read and write two tables (for now), so in principle
dbase would be nice. But since the program has to become localized to at
least three or four languages using special chars I'm not really sure
that it would fit.

I'll look out for it, I remember having heard about an embedded version
of firebird. Currently my mental upper limit is around 1 MB in size (on
disk) ...

Thank you,
