Not quite. It works okay for simple binaries now, but still craps out
on running bigger apps such as gcc.

I'm using the gumstix ( myself for little endian ARM
builds, but they only have 64M RAM and no ethernet or IDE. For big
endian, I use the Linksys NSLU2, which has only 32M RAM but ethernet
and dual USB (which lets you hook up a disk each.)
