Iam curious what platform this is?  I have been looking at the geode family, but this sounds very nice...

I'm trying to investigate the possibility of running Grid Engine  
exechost code on small form factor / low power systems.

The basic system block  is an Intel Pentium-M with 1GB RAM. The IDE  
storage device is a 1Gb CompactFlash card. The host OS is a variant  
of Fedora Core 2 Linux.
The overall system packaging is incredibly small and quite cool looking.

Fedora Linux + 1Gb Ram + Pentium M seem like decent specs for running  
SGE on the device.  Has anyone else done some research or testing on  
these sorts of ultra-small systems? Are there sourceode build methods  
that will disable or remove memory-hungry features that may not be  
needed on small, single CPU devices?

Regards,
Chris
