I'm attempting to compile Moblin OS so that I can try it on my Eee. Moblin supposedly incorporates techniques for making Linux boot in 5 seconds, techniques which were presented on a Linux conference some time ago. According to its official site, Moblin doesn't support non-SSE3 CPUs. My Eee uses a Celeron M ULV 353 CPU, so yeah it's a non-SSE3 CPU. But what the heck, I'll go ahead and try it anyway. It's not like it's going to explode anyway. There must be some patches out there that would it enable it to work.

If it works, I'll try to use Boot Booster so that I can further shorten the time it takes to turn my PC on and load GRUB.

BTW, I'm also interested to know if coreboot works with Eee. Since I would need to mess with its ROM, there would be a real danger of bricking it, and turning it into a very expensive paper weight. Blah...
