Truely outstanding ! We may expect pdaXrom/XFCE or pdaXrom/iceWM initrd.bin in a near future I guess ... and the tool really works like a charm.

Excellent!!! (and i have the day off today, too!)

one thing, though.. how do i build and install a kernel (and/or module) for pdaxrom?
I am hoping to build modules for a vga usb cam an old belkin usb ethernet adapter, a bt usb dongle, and maybe compile some other options for fun.
