Well, if this is for a company or something, maybe you should do a little more research than a message board.

Have you searched the web yet? What are your requirements?

Embedded systems are not the same as a standard PC i.e. do not have a PCI bus, no video card capabilities and require an OS designed around the system.

Here is an example of an embedded system that can run with linux.
