 i have, and there are quite a few hoops to jump through.  the first
is getting the GPL source code out of toshiba.  this is absolutely
essential.  the second is creating a "replacement firmware" which
loads debian-installer.

 if you can ascertain whether they've used u-boot (which they probably
have) then the job is made a lot easier, _especially_ if you can get
the GPL source code out of toshiba for u-boot.

 if they "won't" provide it, you get gpl-violations.org to issue a
cease and desist order.  which will go down like a lead balloon, but
tough titty.

 ubuntu is a waste of time, li, and is a red herring.
