This is the first I've heard of it, but it certianly looks like a good,
and relatively easy, target for someone to get debian working on.

It'd be a bit hard to fit a useful debian system into the 64 mb flash
(though emvedian and other approaches can fit a debian-derived system in
that size).

But using it with a USB flash drive and full debian, or netbooting
seems very doable.
