just out of curiosity, I installed debian to my pda since i have tons of space. After this was successful, I want to install programs based on debian.

what methods are there? I'd like to know some of the bumpy roads you guys went through.

ohh btw, i can view my medical drug guide in this mozilla. "which is a good thing."

Typical way to add programs (and upgrade Debian too...) in Debian is using 'apt-get' as follows...this assumes that you're little Z is connected to the net either by WiFi or ethernet card....

To add programs:
#apt-get install synaptic

Synaptic is a GUI install program for Debian, works great, allows you to see what you want to install, get some info on those apps, select and then install them. Very simple to use

For a text-based install program then substitute aptitude for synaptic....

To upgrade Debian:
#apt-get update
#apt-get upgrade

There are some other commands besides these but this should be enough to get you going....
