The HP CE boxes are, I believe, SH-3 based.  You could take one apart
and see what is on the chips inside :-).

If you really want a CE-like box, you might want to consider the
Tosheba Libretto.  The 50CT runs like $1400ish and the 70CT runs
$1900ish.  The 50CT is a P75 machine with 16M of RAM, PCMCIA, IRDA and
a few extra goodies.  The keyboard is smaller than normal, but works
great.  FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD all run flawlessly on it, so I
don't see why Linux/i386 wouldn't work as well.  The hardware is
basically documented.

The CE boxes are going to be *HARD* to support because they typically
use custom hardare for everything.  Check out the netbsd tech-kern
archives at for a recent discussion on the
difficulties in doing this.
