This is essentially what I do on my iPaq, except I let the X-server/squeak
startup get handled by an /etc/rc script (I like to keep the OS visible :)
Contrary to popular belief, the X-server can be built to be quite small..
I believe the one on the iPaq is about 700k in size. Of course you still
need the X-libs which adds to the size of things.
You could cut out the middle-man and go straight framebuffer, of course...
Shouldn't SDL-Squeak allow this?
