This is a build guide for a custom MP3 box, which has no harddrive, floppy, or video card and boots from the network. It also fetches the songs from the network. It is intended as template, quick reference, and a template to building a custom MP3 box. Frequently asked questions related to MP3 box building, its usage, problems, and references are given.
Much of this information came from authors private ideas and source files covered under GNU licenses. Huge thanks goes to Tom Jones (for helping me design the box), Ryan Defelic (for his MP3 box being a alpha-prototype), Steve Maroney (for asking me many questions), the LRP project, and of course The Penguin (which sits on his shrine next to my network closet :=) )
