    Linux Kernel 2.0.36
    Custom software
    Cyrix MediaGX200 - performs like a 486-100, seriously! ;(
    16MB RAM
    1.4Gig 2.5" HD
    Compaq 4X SCSI CDROM

    Unoptimized boot time: about 1:15
    When I get around to it, I'll take it out of my car and optimize the kernel and hopefully get it < 1 min.
