James R. William Zavada will present "Using Linux on Nanocomputers"

The recent introduction of nanocomputers (book-sized x86 boxes) can
combined with Linux in creative combinations opens the possibility for
innovative, custom computing solutions.

James will describe how he used both to create a space-saving,
low-power, custom server for his home network, including details on
where he acquired x86 nanocomputer equipment and how he "rolled his
custom Linux mini-distro.

The presentation will give some ideas about the uses of Linux on
nanocomputers, outline the skills needed to create a custom Linux
distro for use on nanocomputers, and describe one method for doing so.
