Olof Johansson has just posted a way to install an alternative Linux
distro on the new Chromebook:

He has succeded with Suse just using the Suse root filesystem and the
Chrome OS stock kernel. It looks like a complicated procedure (at
least for me) and the catch is that it will boot from the Chrome
partition, but I understand that he and other developers are working
on booting from an external storage altogether.

If anybody has any ideas on this subject they will do me a great
favour. I have a limited budget. I was saving money to buy the new
Genesi device which hasn't come yet but this little gem is tempting me
