Arch on OLPC XO

Hey guys,

I participated in the get one give one thingy that OLPC did back in November and I've had my XO for a while. It's fun to tinker on, very cool hardware! I haven't gotten much real use out of, but I'm glad some kid somewhere has one to enjoy.

I recently stumbled upon a post about someone putting CRUX on their XO, and it sounded like a cool idea to try Arch on mine.

Also, those eee pc zealots have a huge thread! wink Those machines look sharp! I quite wish I had one instead of the XO, I just feel like I'd get more use out of one, but it's hard to feel bad about supporting some cool education programs.

Anyway, any other XO owners out there? any that have tried Arch? I'm stuck at work now, just digging through what it might take to give this a shot tonight, I think it would be cool!

If I make any progress at all, I'll throw the info on a wiki page.

I'm not sure how to install Arch on the XO but here are some forums:
