Hey all. (Hopefully) Simple question. Can I use the documented NAND Flash Backup & NAND Flash Restore to safely backup and restore the currently installed image + root + home + data? My idea is to use this so I can simply swap between OZ/opie, OZ/gpe, OZ/e17, pdaxrom & cacko without having to go through the whole reflash, reinstall personal apps, update & upgrade process to get back to square one.

All I get when I try to create a backup is 'cannot initialize cf'. Does this mean that my card (a 2GB PQI CF 40X) isn't compatible for this? I've reformatted it as 'FAT' under XP, then tried a 'mkfs.msdos' on my Z. Neither worked.

If it's incompatible, and there doesn't seem to be an option to save to the sd, I'll have to go out & get another (preferably cheap) card. Anybody have any suggestions on brands? thks
