my guess: almost certainly yes. it'll run win98 or win2k, so netbsd
should be fine. a few points:
* no network. you'll have to get a usb ethernet device.
* no batteries; line power (110-240vac) only. the unit itself takes
15vdc/3amps (for what?!) from the power adaptor. building
something portable shouldn't be too hard.
* no regular serial ports. it'd be nice to just slap a serial
console on it (then i could use my palm pilot or hp200lx)...or can
that be done over usb?
* they only sell the unit with a 64 or 128 meg dimm, but apparently
it can handle 256 meg dimms. when they come out.
oh yes, and they say they *will* ship to europe. :)
