Most likely for boot speed.  Devices with out a lot of cache take much
longer to decompress the Kernel.

Hmm.. Looks a bit troublesome.

I don't see a serial port mentoned anywhere or in the picures.  Is
there a serial port?  or a serial port mod?

Flash part is soldered onto the board but at least its a PLCC so it
will be pretty easy to replace with a a socket.

VGA is handled by VSA but I think others have made that work on some
of the other geode boards.

Are the datasheets for the MediaGX available?
