You can use the openmoko dbug/jtag board at Noisebridge for projects
like this.  It's in the electronics lab on the grey shelf.  It lives
at Noisebridge, so bring your linksys router with you.  We probably
need to build the cable to connect the devices, which is conveniently
discussed on a dd-wrt forum (see 2nd link below).
