I found a November 21 build torrent
chromiumos.tar.gz by Hexxeh
"chromium 4.0253.0 (32516)" under Help-->About
I extracted the 2.78GB *.img file and used Diskimager-02-r23 to put it onto a 4GB SD card.
I booted this on my Mini-10 (1010) with a USB SD card stick.
It booted fine, no problems with the GMA500 graphics.
Once the browser opened, I was able to surf the net with my wired ethernet connection.
Response was very slow for everything, including clicking menu items and typing a new URL into the address box.
This reminds me how Firefox runs on an embedded PDA device, very slow.
If anyone has a link to a newer torrent, please post it here.
Edit: Dec. 5th
I found the newest version which fits on a 1GB USB stick. ChromeOS-Cherry.tar.gz
It's located half way down the following page: Hisham’s Blog
On my Mini-10 my Broadcom WIFI card works.
Dell# 1387 (4312 based chip).
It does take about 2-3 minutes to acquire wireless APs.
Once it detected the four APs at my location, I was able to connect to my WPA network using my WPA password.

I have it running on my new 10V. I don't know how to make WiFi work but the wired ethernet connection is working. I have read instructions http://linux.dell.com/files/cto/README.txt how to activate wiFi but don't understand them.
