when looking for an affordable NC I somehow stumbled over the ST-
5535 from Min Ho. It should sell for about 150,-- USD. It is based on 
the CyrixMediaGXL with VGA, audio, 100TX on board, up to 128MB 
ram and supports up to 64MB code Prom. As they currently do not 
have an OS for it a 16MB image was nice to start with. By the way, 
what was needed for an X-Terminal? There is a german company 
that gets ICA, RDP, CDS, an X11R6 WM, Netscape communicator 
4.6 with JVM and E-Mail into a 16MB flash rom (they use a linux 
kernel). I am working to get one or two samples of the ST-5535 into 
my hands to do some research. For additional information goto
