Starter looking for hints, tips, pointers, etc.

Hi there,

Since some time I have been interested in embedded Linux systems,
willing to build one myself. I am experienced in electronics and in
Linux, but not in the combination of those.

Is there anyone out there that can give me hints, tips, etc. for a
starter in the embedded world? I'd like to build a small Linux system
that can act as a web server & MySQL database server, possibly based
on PC104 or a small-board system. Anyone that can advise a specific
brand, type? And maybe even an address in the Netherlands that sells
such boards?

Many, many thanks in advance,

No need for skills in electronics here. The PC104 board is just a PC. In
your application you need a harddisk, anyway, you can use a standard Linux
distro off the shelf.

PC 104 Boards and add-ons (e.g. by Jumptec) a easily available everywhere.
You can use as a starting point for your search.
