A correction to the detail, the device I cross built erlang to run is linksys
nslu2 -
http://www.amazon.com/Linksys-Storage-Disk-Drives-NSLU2/dp/B0001FSCZO/sr=8-1/qid=1162053095
which has 266MHz ARM CPU, 32MB RAM, and USB for storage.

I've added pointers to nslu2 (optware) mk file and openembedded bitbake recipe
to the wiki page.
