Linux in machines with few resources.

I saw in /. an article about the release of OPIE that is mainly for the Zaurus PDA.

I have a Toshiba Libretto and I was wondering if OPIE could be used as the graphical fornt end for a machine with relatively low specs.

Has anybody tried this? Any step by step account of somebody that has done this?

graphical fronteds usually need reasonably fast networks, even if another machine does the work, the display is painfully slow on the graphics terminal if you lack bandwidth

I have read that OPIE can theoretically be installed on an older laptop, but there was no reference as to how to do it. I'm interested in possibly doing the same thing, so I'll keep you posted what I found out.
