SSH on the Nokia N900

When visiting clients to check on their systems or problems, I usually bring along my laptop so i can hook into their network and troubleshoot.  Now, I can do without bringing it.
With the Nokia N900, I am able to connect to the client’s network via wifi and test their networks.  Also with its X-terminal and SSH, I am able to login to the linux server and remotely check on errors in the logs to track down the problem.
This is very convenient as I don’t have to lug around a bag with the laptop.
Next step is to find out if I can use the N900 as a bootable drive and boot off it  into a computer.  Right now, I do this using a USB pendrive.
