Which distro and hardware specs would you guys recommend for that?
Any tips will be appreciated.
Thanks a lot in advance.
look at www.tinycorelinux.net
use microcore from this page: no X, no windows.. put your command lines in the scripts which are started at boot.
You need few memory.. few cpu.. good luck (in the tinycorelinux forum you can see few advice how to connect your 3g modem, or simply ask for specific support)
