I am just beginning with Linux and currently have a RedHat 7.2 box setup as a server. Would it be possible to install just a bare minimum linux system up on the Point and use it to connect remotely to the RedHat server? I'm not sure what the proper terminology is for this setup but I was thinking you could (wirelessly) run programs like web browsers, Star Office, mail, etc.
I guess I would still need to run x on the 510 but everything else can run from the server.
Can someone shed some light on this? Is anyone doing it?
You might try LTSP.org they have released an image on the sourceforge downloads section called wirelessltsp something. It is supposed to boot the kernel and load pcmcia servies then detect your network card then proceed to boot the machine as a LTSP client. As far as the pen services under linux at that point it's a matter on really configureing your terminal settings. The 510 may not support cardbus wireless network cards. Wirelessltsp is supposed to work with any network card supported by pcmcia services they used for their kernel. The image can be loaded on a floppy or a flash card. so you could get a 2mb compactflash and an adapter card and boot it from that.
