One friend of mine has got an iPaq 3870. But it doesn't provide an 
line-in. Just has line-out and a built-in mic.

Anyway: Would be really interested if you manage to get it running
a) because of hardware (line-in)
b) because of speed (cpu-power/software).

Please keep us posted.

Well okay. But using a dual-pcmcia-jacket to have a soundcard and a 
wlan-interface and ... oh boy ... then you could as well use a small 
shuttle-board in a neat and small pc-case, right?
