I attempted to follow the tutorial on

http://www.oesf.org/index.php?title=Step-b...ing_for_newbies

but the first step - unmount /media/cf gives the error:-

/bin/sh: unmount: not found
*


It's umount not unmount.

I had no luck formatting the CF card or using it to flash a new OS / desktop.

I got a new CF card and it works fine...problem solved at least!

for future reference to anybody else with this problem... I have noticed that a few of my 'new' CF cards aren't actually partitioned, they're just raw formatted somehow and winbloze plays along happily. creating a partition with fdisk, then formatting via mkfs.msdos /dev/hda1 makes CF play nicely with my Z for flashing.(mind you I do all this on my z as I can only get fdisk in winbloze to work on the ide channels.)

Does anyone know the shortcut for entering the maintenance menu on the Zaurus 5500? I tried the OK + Cancel at powerup but it just boots in normally.

press d+p (or from what i've read, g+p in some models) and the hard reset button.
