I am getting ready to buy a 4GB cf card and a 1GB MMC or SD card. I am trying to decide if there really is an advantage to getting and SD card over an MMC card. is there really that much of a speed difference on a sl6k. the advantage i see of getting teh MMC card is that I will not have to worry as much about not being able to find drivers to uses it.

My main plan is to leave it formated fat32 and format the cf card as ext2. So the SD/MMC card will be used as a floppy to transfer files to and from machines. I do not have plans to run programs off of there but that is where I plan to keep document and files I am working on.

SD is cheaper from what I have seen. But the seed test on here for the 6k showed that it really did not matter how fast the card was since teh Z seemed to stay at the same speed.

Any subjestions would help.

just Fyi, you can still use SD/MMC/CF for simple file transfer while having programs, even applets, installed to it. Use "/" to drop to a console after you pull the SD/MMC/CF card out and screen showing "5, 4, 3, 2, 1..." I use this oftern to transfer images from Digicam's SD card to Z. Pop the original card in and the Z will back to normal.
