My personal experience is that the system (with ipkg-link) goes a bit
'wonky' if you boot it without the card or remove the card while
running. In my experience, it is nothing a reboot can't fix, but I also
don't presume that my experience has shown _all_ the potholes that are
possible to hit with this - although I do define "stupid user" more
often than I would like to admit :)
The problem with some of the devices with smaller flash space is that if
you want to use flite or other LARGE applications. You really need to
have it installed on external storage - I'll check out the options Koen
listed to see if any of them are better for my purposes.
Glad it worked for you.
