Hello to all,

I am gathering everything to install OpenBSD in my Sl-C3200; but I need to admit that the more I read the more I get confused.
I hope some of you will find the time and patience to help me.

After reading as many post as I have been able to follow (jpmatrix, mathemajikian, zdevil and others - this are the names I remember rolleyes.gif ), I have done the following.

.-Have www.planetofidiots.com/zaurus guide.
.-Electronic copy of Absolute OpenBSD.
.-A plethora of links.
.-Plenty of questions...
.-TRISOFT recovery files

1) I have currently installed / running cacko 1.23 full, what will be the procedure to dual boot with cacko?
I found a guide from mathemajikian to actually accomplish the opposite.

2) What is the difference of installing OpenBSD regularly and 4.1 snapshot?
About this I did print both guide in how to installed OpenBSD and OpenBSD snapshot and they are practically the same.

3) If the prefer method is via the snapshot, please help me to find / guide in the installation procedure.

4) I have a good network connections at a time right now, can the full installation be done using either a CF card or USB thumb drive?

P.S. I am aware that all the questions are very basic, but I am willing to try biggrin.gif!
I will be reading my Absolute OpenBSD book in the mean time.

Thank you for the answer.
So far I have been reading Absolute OpenBSD.

The main thing that I have learn is that I need to learn more - UNIX user long time ago.
In any case thank you for your disposition to help and share.

I will take a little longer before trying OpenBSD:
1.- I am away from home on a work trip, and do not want to be with out a functional Zaurus.
2.- I need to develop BSD skills before commiting my Zaurus.

Again thank you all.
