Ah; it scared me because you said 'I plan to once coreboot is up' as in,
core boot isn't working yet? :)
The S10 boots Wyse OS; a minimal desktop look a like with soem basic
menus and runs RDP and ICA clients. So it's a PXE like box sorta.
The S10 runs Ubuntu 10.04 in GUI mode from the USB stick; though that is
VESA mode i'm quite sure, so atleast vesa mode works properly :) I doubt
the Geode video drivers do OpenGL anyway though.
