it's pretty much an ARM dev board so the knowledge is pretty transferable (i built my old knowledge on palm/xscale and marvell).
the one *big* difference would be the bootloader. i've not looked at the newer chumby sw drops, but the v1 bits didn't use u-boot while i've heard the insignia one does. i think uboot is pretty handy, but it's no openfirmware for debugging startup goo :-)
