network boot, booting off compact flash, booting off usb will make that
box "quiet", or boot a distro off /boot and no other directories on the hd

disks makes noises because its mechanical and syslogd is not necessarily
the major user of disk read/writes

if you have 256MB or more of memory, everything fits into memory
including minimal x11 + kde + network
	- ie .. bootable CF, bootable usb, network boot, etc
	( no moving parts.. no fans .. no power supply noise either )
