If? It is only a question of "when" - and hopefully before tuesday when
I have promised to deliver the infoscreen to my client.
So far I have wasted precious time trying to make the stick boot on VIA
Epia800 boards, but have now given up (dammit, that is the kind of
boards already bought and waiting for me at my client :-( ).
It will be a working Debian-based system, able to apt-get (or aptitude,
as I prefer) packages, so adapting into a firewall should be trivial.
