If this gets off the ground I'll probably buy one and help.. I've been
meaning to replace my years-old Linux-based crap for a looong time, but
like Ike, I can't afford the downtime. If I had a second device, it
wouldn't be a big deal... but I don't want to buy one and spend all the
time setting it up. If I had an image that I could just throw on a CF
card that was almost all the way there, I would do it in a second.
