    This has been covered.

    Answer was...

    "No idea, but if you can install linux then you can definitely use Vmware and you can most certainly install windows using that, and OSX 86 and so on.."

    Is there a specific reason you want to run windows? I mean afterall, it's ****.

    Check out the Familiar Linux distribution at handhelds.org... it's designed to run on Ipaq PDAs and has a full OS including GUI and BIOS in about 16mb. Or so it seems to me... I haven't had a chance to test it yet.

    But can you recompile the whole thing to work on an x86 processor?

    That didn't make any sense, the only why is EXE? You mean you want to run windows executables? 'wine' will do that for you in linux.

Chances are that im gonna use ReactOS , a windows clone for under 20mb , that could fit on the default 64mb CF!

    Crap. I was just messing around with bidding on eBay and won one for $30 shipped. Guess I'll have to pay more attention now. (Begins searching for a Linux front end...)

    I know you guys mentioned it would run windows with vmware, but what about natively? Anyone actually have success? I've messed around with linux since college, but don't feel comfortable enough to do anything with it!
