Ah, this is good news, I was just looking at the A8 version.

Do you have minicom working on the usb ports (using an FTDI
usb-2-serial chip?).

Have you cobbled together some sort of wired ethernet
(usb-2-ethernet) of some type or do you just use
wireless Ethernet?

You gonna put a doc into the hadbook like trimslice?

I'm itching to do this, but, I wanted to wait on the A15 chip
(Omap5). Alas I may jump in before that A15 is shipping....
