im getting a cl3200 to replace my tired jornada 720, but i have reservations about microdrives.

i did a search and found some info on replacing the micro drive with a larger micro drive but nothing on a cf replacement. i have several questions:

is their any reason i should shy away from replacing the 6gig mcd with an 8gig cf and running cacko?

is the lowered power consumption and faster load times of a cf card really worth the time/expense/risk?

do i really need to worry about micro drive failure?

if anyone could answer these questions and provide some detailed information on exactly how to install a new cf card that would be wonderful.

i use mandriva linux so doing linux partitions are within my abilities.

well speed for one thing would be a factor

as for putting it at the end eof the dirve i wouldnt really now how effecitve that would be as they dont releases the wear leveling infomation but if its a "every x blocks has y spare" then it mould be fine, but if its a pool of spare blocks then you would be SOL
