Is there any special need for this source format? People might be able 
to install anything for pdf creation - but I'm still in the process to

don't know whether I would be able to run lyx at all on the system 
itself (GX2, 500 MHz, 128 MB RAM) - and it takes 100 MB source files for

That's a good starting point, as soon as someone knows how to put this 
info into coreboot.
