ok, so the install cd is all in Japanese, which doesn't help a Scottish/Ukranian Canadian like me, eh! I've found & followed serveral links & online help that are closely but not exactly related (Trisoft's help page is for windows xp, not 2000).

So no matter what I do I can't get the usb drivers installed. Now when I plug the Z in it shows up as a 'C860' in the driver list, but there's no connected usb device on the task bar. I've even tried to uninstall the drivers, but the device files must stll be there because it won't even look at the disk anymore.

Help me from the never ending reboot cycle! I want to be able to 'talk' to my Z!!! HELP!!

here comes some advice, but it's only from my mind (i don't have a
Win2K box to check this now).

There was a funny behaviour that Win2K was installing the USB, but
not the NDIS driver (the "dummy-network interfacecard").
If i remind it right, the trick was as follows:
- Install the USB driver
- Install IntelliSync
- Check that the Zaurus is in Sync and not on "USB-Stick" mode
- Connect the Zaurus with the PC
- Start the Zaurus manager part in your IntelliSync group
(the last picture on http://www.trisoft.de/en_c860winxpsetup.htm)
- Toggle from "USB TCP/IP advanced" to "USB standard (??)"

In that moment, Windows notices that it misses the NDIS driver,
asks for the CD and installs it smoothly.

Like i said before, that is what i actually remind and it is more than
a year since i last played with Win2K, so don't blame me if it doesn't
work biggrin.gif

We're crossing fingers,
