Hi, I recently bought a cheap Chinese mini netbook, but it comes with
Windows CE installed, and wanted to ask if it would be possible to
install VectorLinux on it.
The features are:

# Display: 7" TFT LCD, 800 x 480 pixels ( WSVGA )
# Processor:ARM920, 266MHz
# RAM: fast EPC DDR 64MB at 133MHZ.
# Built-in NAND flash storage: 2GB,expandable up by SD card up to 16GB
# SD card slot: supports up to 16GB SD memory card
# Built-in devices: Stereo speakers
# Other ports: 3 x USB 1.1 Port & 1 x Ethernet LAN Port(RJ-45)
# Note: USB port supports Keyboards and Mice etc. but not support USB
Memory sticks, Hard Drives, Optical Drives (DVD/CD) or Printers
# attention:No built-in Optical Drives CD/DVD
# Microphone jack for voice recording:Yes
# Stereo earphones jack:Yes
# Wireless networking: High Speed (Up to 54Mbps data rate)
IEEE802.11b/g WiFi for wireless LAN connection with support of
WPA(WIFI Protected Access),AES/CCMP&WEP with TKIP security
# Input device: 80-key Keyboard, touch-pad with left & right mouse key
# Video format: AVI, MP4, 3GP (MPEG4 Profile), ASF (MPEG4 profile)
# Music format: MP3, WMA, AAC, AAC+CAT
# Power adapter: 110~240V,50/60Hz Input

I just want to tell me if is possible, and if it will be difficult, I
will not bother to do the work for me, but I do not want to risk
disabling the mini netbook.
Thanks for your time.
