As uaual, the source code is available in our git server:

The Android-x86 project is aimed to provide a complete solution
for Android on x86 platforms.
Currently we use ASUS Eee PC as the reference platform.
However, the work should be easy to port to other x86 platform.
Test reports (success or fail) are welcome.

Couldn't get an external usb keyboard working though. Had a macally keyboard and my lenovo keyboard. The caps lock key would light up but that was all.
Power button does indeed let you shutdown, yay! It 'chugs' a bit drawing all those shutdown boxes but once it shuts down, it shuts down quick.
Boot time from select the boot in unetbootin selector to the shell was 18 seconds and 35 seconds with all the graphics loaded.
The previous version, 14 seconds to the shell, 33 seconds with all the graphics loaded.
Looks like hardly any difference.
Might be able to do some real browsing tonight

For the keyboard issue, could you send me a logcat output?
Have you tried the installer? It would book quicker if you installed to harddisk. :)

Heres what logcat says after plugging in the keyboard:
E/EventHub( 2343): could not open /dev/input/event9, Permission denied

You should make them available on the download site.

The only real problem is that wireless doesn't come back after the OS goes into hibernate (screen goes black, press any key to get it back).
Is there any way of getting screenshots?

1 very nice, and very fast at internet browsing but only with ethernet.
2 wi fi find my modem but it can't connect, acquiring ip address and..... nothing.
3 the market is different from the original but you can find a lot of application like dolphin browser
4 it's a froyo release so i think that is possible to install flash 10.1 by a sd card
5 set the timeout to never or your pc will go to sleep mode
overall it's a good OS

eee702 boots, it runs. I've problems with the timeout but it might be solved. WiFi works fine on one of three available nets I have. USB-mouse / Mousepad is extreamly slow in some occassions.
What I would like to have is a persistent installation on an USBstick or SD-card, so I can save my settings, for permanent use and evaluation.
I've no experience with unetbootin, so I might try that.

Will tets to make a normal install on a SD or SDHC card.

After much debating and telling him it was a bad idea, he still insists claiming that if the Toshiba AC100 sells like crazy (which it does, they sold out after just a couple of weeks at our store, must be the NVidia sticker) then equipping the other eye sores we have in storage with Android will help us get rid of them and maybe make a profit...
So you can see my predicament here... Whiney notes of desperation aside, are those x86 ports the only available Android OS's? Does anyone know where I can find the AC100 OS to download, if it's even been provided for free download? Is there a team out there dedicated into turning Android on a x86 plataform into an actual, usable, every day OS?
