I have had my 5500 for quite a while so I am uesd to linux on a handheld, but I am finding the 3200 a whole new ball game. biggrin.gif so I have a fiew probly obvious questions.

1st what do the 2 all Japanese keys do the ones after Fn Ctrl Aand before the sapce?

After I got it I flashed it over to OZ/OPIE I run OPIE on the collie so I thought that was a good place to start. Now for the how do I make it work questions.

2nd USB as a device it worked before I flashed it thats how I copied the files to flash it now it the computer (winXP and linux both do the same) sees it as a storage device but dosnt map the drive in networking mode with linux.inf it dose the same thing the adpter shows but it says "connection failed on the computer. It acts like somting is keeping the usb bussy when I first install the driver it hangs untell I unplug the cable. So am I missing somthing on starting ? Ive tryed

modprobe g_eather


modprobe  g_file_storage file=/media/card

both run ok on the Z but dont talk to the computer beyond identfying themselvs.

3rd USB as a host Reconises Devises and then sits there Ive tryed mountiong by hand and it says device not ready or bussy is there a verson of the usbapplet for OPIE, If somthing is conflicting with usb will it work at all though? Random thought can you run usb host and device at the same time or do I need to stop one before starting the other?

4th IRK Belkin installs, loads and thendose nothing it actes like somthing isnt leting it find the irda I am not sure whrere to start to check it I know the irda on the Z works for xfering files and the keybord works on my old Z just fine?

I am open to sugestions of other ROMs as well. the main things I use are the PIM apps, IRK for taking notes on the Z, Wellenrighter, Zroadmap, Bluetooth for internet over my phone, WPA supplicant for internet where there is WIFI, a pdf reader, I would realy like X-screensaver if possable.
