Most likely for boot speed. Devices with out a lot of cache take much
longer to decompress the Kernel.

Hmm.. Looks a bit troublesome.
I don't see a serial port mentoned anywhere or in the picures. Is
there a serial port? or a serial port mod?
Flash part is soldered onto the board but at least its a PLCC so it
will be pretty easy to replace with a a socket.
VGA is handled by VSA but I think others have made that work on some
of the other geode boards.
Are the datasheets for the MediaGX available?
