Just got mine up and running with 1G of ram and a 1G USB-ZIP pendrive.
I'm a newbie to Linux, and have played with Knoppix briefly before discovering DSL (in the Linux Toys book pusblished by Extreme Tech.
Case opened with four teeny-tiny screws, snapped in the DDR, re-screwed (tight fit, because it really does make contact with a rubberized mating sheet over the heatsink), plugged in peripherals, and crossed my fingers.
DSL booted right up from the pendrive, AND I've got net and sound working with absolutely no tweaking atall, atall. Slick.
Couple hours of runtime, and the side of the case is very warm to the touch, but not alarmingly so.
Next project: see if I can get my external notebook HD drive working, and if the sound is clean enough, I'll be working on making this into a music server.
Or maybe, I'll be taking this pendrive home instead of lugging my laptop.
