Hi all!

I just finished purchasing a OCZ SD 4gb and a seagate 8gb microdrive for my 3200. Im running cacko 1.23. Anyway, I just want to say that I am happy running 12gb onboard my pda. The truth of the topic I'm posting about is the installation and partitioning and formating of the microdive. I CANNOT BELIEVE I SPENT 8 HOURS DOING IT! I had tons of issues after creating the three partitions. I formated the drives, created the .sys directories and cp over the hdd1sys hdd2sys directory content into the .sys files respectively. IT WAS A PAIN IN THE ASS!! during the boot, these directories would magically disapear and I had to start over and over and over again. even at some points, my partitions would not mount at all. AM I CRAZY?

Has anybody had any horrible expirience with the terminal or was it something isolated or unique to my situation? I'm just curious and would like to read up on other people's expiriences. I hear the terminal is buggy on the z. Is this true? is this what i expirienced?

after playing with the zaurus for a few days, I decided to reboot. Then I noticed my hdd1 and hdd2 lost its mount. So I decided to flash the sharprom and then flash the cacko 1.23. I can't believe this solved the problem! Now my drives mount automatically. THis was a serious headache for me but all works now.
