This might be something that might be of interest to owners of C3100 and C3200.
Since pdaXrom runs mainly from the NAND and doesn't really use the internal MicroDrive explicitly and Angstrom runs from the MicroDrive and doesn't use the NAND which really is a waste of the NAND, it could be possible and might be desirable to have them dual boot on the Zaurus. Both use a 2.6.x kernel, the Angstrom one using the microdrive as rootfs and the pdaXrom one using the NAND. uboot which pdaXrom is using allows you to select a different device for rootfs, ie NAND or MicroDrive. This won't work as of now, but would anyone be interested if things went that way? And if you really want to, it probably would also be possible to boot off the SD card as well, for something like running Debian...

Is it possible to boot pdaxii13 from u-boot? And if not, why not?
I'd like to have pdaxii13 on NAND and a debian system on SD and use u-boot to choose which one to boot.
