I found this board quite by accident and was rather surprised that it even existed, although I'm sure SOMEONE would have sparked some interest in the WebPal device.
I used to work in the engineering department for NewCom, Inc. as their Linux compatability tester and such.
During that time, I believe RedHat was about to go public, and I'm pretty sure because I laughed at my boss for not taking my advice and jumping on the Linux bandwagon as I told him he should have.
Nevertheless, and needless to say, I don't have my WebPal device anymore. Now I know I should have kept it around a lot longer since it did have the IDE port and such on it to expand it.
In any case, I'm going to see if anyone I know from the old NewCom has any information that may be of help to you guys since Linux is being ported to it. Although WebPal isn't being manufactured anymore (from what I can tell), I'd still like to see Linux run on it.
