1. I want to develop a media center platform
2. I want to run linux 2.6.xx
3. I want to use software like VLC
4. I need an USB and HDD capability
Whic BF version would you suggest me?

Given your needs for USB and an IDE drive??, the 54x series would be the way to go. a 548 should do the trick, but you may be able to use a 542, just check out the USB capabilities a bit more.
