Hi folks,

I received my parts this week and started building a node.
The parts I've acquired:
Intel D2700MUD Motherboard:

ARK CS-Ci02 mini-itx case:

Crucial 2GB SODIMM DDR3PC3 memory

The D2700 Motherboard has an embedded USB storage header on the motherboard.
Rather than using a compact flash drive, I acquired some SanDisk 512MB
Embedded USB Flash storage devices. (Found on eBay)
Here's some documentation on that
http://media.digikey.com/pdf/Data%20Sheets/M-Systems%20Inc%20PDFs/uSSD_5000_Manual_03.pdf

I downloaded the Limey Linux image, and used Physdiskwrite on my windows pc
to write the image to the USB Flash drive.
Inserted the USB flash drive on the header, and gave it a rip.

You'll find pictures of the case, mobo and flash drive here.

Ok, so it boots... loads kernel, makes a ram disk, and runs through a long
list of boot up things.
It mounts the root filesystem then seems to die.

VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly on device 1:0
Freeing unused kernel memory: 292k freed
EXT2-fs warning: checktime reached, running e2fsck reccomended

There is no command prompt, so not sure what I should be doing next?  Doh!

I'm going to try a different boot image for linux, and check out the
hardware independently.

Thanks,
Randy
