I got the bottom end 2G Surf for free, from my bank.  The Xandros Linux
on it is a bit of a pain and one thing I discovered is it doesn't like
to have a space or semi-colon in a WPA key.  I investigated installing
another distro on it, but found that due to limited hardware resources,
it would be very difficult to do.  I guess it's OK for kids, which was
it's intended market.
