Good question. Short answer: I don't know. I'll pry off the hood
and take a peek at what's on the board, unless this is something that
shares a die with the CPU.

#1 is definitely a possible stumbling block, so my first task is to
identify the PCI bridge. The box has 48 MB of RAM in it, which should
be enough for both a small RAM disk root filesystem (busybox?) and the
kernel; the rest could be NFS mounted. I've converted old x86 PCs to
diskless X Terminals using exactly that trick.
