Smallest embedded HW to run Linux

Started by Ben Scott September 15, 2005
What is the smallest (in size, not in computational power or memory) 
embedded hardware (CPU+USB Host+RS232+RAM+Ethernet+Parallel IO+Optional 
IDE/ATA) capable of running Linux (preferably kernel 2.6) ?

Check out: http://www.picocomputing.com I just saw them at the Embedded Systems Conference in Boston and the rep there said that a Linux BSP is a month or two away. Since Linux is already up and running on the PowerPC in the Virtex 4, it shouldn't be too tough to get running. John

Cool reference - thanks. I have a mini-itx; they are indeed fun to play with.
