Okay, say I bought this box for $200.  I take it home, I plug
it in and... nothing, no OS.  For a PC I create a Linux disk,
or a DOS disk and boot up, and have something to go on.

Say I wanted to use this machine to write machine code,
or see what I could make it do, write my own OS.  Where
would one start?  Would one HAVE to have the full version
of the OS?  Can anyone think of a way to get it to boot up
to some means to start plugging away?
