I've only lurked for the last few years since the software/distributions for my 5500 dried up but, in a moment of madness I've just bought one of these http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi...em=170273247758.

It's already got xp and office professional and was at a good price.

I thought that I could dual boot linux and replace my 5500 with it as my new toy.

Any comments?

I think it's sexy! Of course I'm kinda into CyberPunk, so maybe you shouldn't listen to me. wacko.gif I don't doubt you could get linux running on it. It's got a VIA C7 chip, the same as the HP mini-note netbook, and it's x86 compatible. Even if you can't find a way to boot from removable media, the new releases of Ubuntu come with Wubi, which lets you set up and install linux from inside windows, and uses the Windows boot menu to choose dual-boot. Compared to getting linux running on a Dreamcast, this will probably be trivial.
