There are a few things you need to understand, first there is no ISO image, the install is done manually. There are hardware requirements:
HP5745T thin client w/2gb RAM MINIMUM!
This wont run on less period. Remember this runs from /dev/ram0 plus operational ram.
It was installed onto a hard drive attached to an HP5745 Thin Client. From there it was stripped of unneeded stuff, things not needed to support a node.
I then built a 1gb file system and copied the stripped ACID INSTALL into it.
A 2gb USB FLASH DRIVE was partitioned into a 1.5gb partition and a 500mb partition.(larger ones can be used).
Partitions were defined as fat16 and mkdosfs was run on each one. Partition 1 was made bootable. Syslinux was run against partition 1.
All files were transferred to partition 1. They include a kernel, system.map, syslinux, syslinux.cfg and the compresses file system.
In the second partition i have an /etc directory where i keep the network configs and the asterisk configs .
The system pulls the configuration info in at boot time.
I doubt this will work on any other device...
Wanted to clear this up..
Getting alot of email asking what machines this might also run on.
The thin client uses a dual core ATOM processor so the kernel is an smp kernel.
So single core based machines will need a different kernel.
Will post here when I get the install DOC'S finished
