You'd have to buy a flash linker of about $ 100,00 before you can put anything on your DS... Other then that it's quite neet and I really dig the Linux community's effort to literally try and put Linux on every device imaginable k:
But I won't be buying one...

My GBA card has some palm-like functionality, such as text and picture viewer.

Well, a few PDA-like functions doesn't equal a real multitasking, multiuser OS. Linux is certainly MUCH cooler. And I like how they're actually making use of some the DS's unique features like the pad...
