Umm, you can just do a frugal install to a CF card and go to town.

it works GREAT!

Hi Su,

I agree with caulktel's comments; I too have tried hard to get the NetVista 2200 to boot from CF.  From the network (a la LTSP) it's doable, but we're (caulktel and myself) are looking for a standalone box here.

There are a ton of these thin clients out there, they are cheap, and could put very basic and reliable computer into folk's hands.  And I mentioned my mesh network goal of the Netvista 2200 paired up with a Linksys WRT54G AP running  sveasoft's alchemy distro:

In any event, this is a great little project and I'm very willing to help write/edit a *Boot DSL from CF on NetVista 2200" howto...this would help alot of folks :)

I've just been perusing the IBM website. There is mucho information there regarding the thin clients and booting TurboLinux from CF card. I even saw some stuff about "other" linux distributions and a walk through on how to configure your CF card to boot properly. It might be worth a visit.
