Body: Enjoyed a fine meal and tried some more experiments with the NetEngine from niblemicro.com. At some point screwed up with the thumb drive partitioning and/or lilo and ended up unable to boot. Fix will be to boot from a network once I've configured all that's necessary to do that.

Body: Fixed my Mini-ITX box and got it running with GeexBox and Ubuntu. The system was reporting drive errors, but with some re-cabling I was able to get the DVD and hard drives happy. GeexBox is pretty sweet, it's a 7MB ISO which you can boot up and play DVDs and music and others on. It even boots in such a way that it ejects the CD and you can load standard CDs in the drive. It's optimized for the Mini-ITX box and uses hardware DVD decoding, so it can play DVDs without problems. Very slick.
