Well... I guess all you would need is to extract the code used to boot into the current
highly integrated linux OS. Then write a version that could boot from the SD. Of course
the new OS would have to be written to run an ARM9 processor and its support chips as
they are implemented in the JBL hardware. Then you would need the code to use the
JBL's buttons/keys and the display interface. You know that the ARM9 includes some
optimazations to help it integrate with linux, right? By linux I don't mean the fullblown
OS that you might be used to on a PC or netbook.

Let us know how you come out with that.

Luck;
Ken
