I currently have 2 I-openers. One is running WIN-ME and has a 6 gig toshiba laptop drive. Im using a Tennmax fan to cool the CPU.
I have a second unit that, at this point, just has a re-flashed bios, (back to v1 or v2) so that it will recognize and boot up a hard drive when attached. I have not done anything to the Sandisk.
I would like, if possible to load any version of windows and once my network connection is established (linksys USB/enet dongle) do a remote install of whatever version of Linux would allow this.
I have followed many of the threads and there doesn't seem to be any readily agreed method of loading Linux. Or even which version of linux would support the i-opener hardware.
Can anyone suggest what would be the best way of implementing a linux port to the i-opener. I',m not looking for small and elegant, but a good solid version which supports efficient web surfing through a usb/ethernet port through a Win-ME machine which goes to a cable modem (ICS).
I have some Unix experience, but that goes back about 15 years to 68000 ports of AT&T and BSD. I still consider Unix the greatest game of adventure ever written.
