OK, guys, go easy on ol' ArchiMark as I just got my new 3200 yesterday after selling my previous one a year ago....so no Z use for a long time....

Anyway, remembered that I had bought an iRiver PMP USB Host Adapter Cable before and would like to try using it with my Linksys USB200M v2.1 'ethernet stick' and also a USB thumbdrive and maybe a USB WiFi stick...

The thought is if I can do that, then I free up my CF card slot for additional storage and don't need to swap with ethernet or wifi cards, etc....

As I just got Z yesterday, still have Sharp ROM on it, but figure that will change soon....pdaXii probably or Debian????

Anyway, what should I do to get this working???

Thanks for any and all suggestions!

Mark

The USB thumb drive should work as a mass storage device. I have one that accepts SD cards, and it mounts automatically in Cacko and pdaxii13.
I don't know about USB wifi, which ones work/dont work. But I've read many times that USB wifi on a Zaurus needs a powered hub because of the low voltage at the USB port. I guess the radio needs more power than other USB peripherals.

Sorry to be bearer of bad news, but the ethernet dongle needs a "driver" (or is "module" the correct term?) from a 2.6 kernel.
I have the same one. Linksys USB200M ver 2.1
Look at this post in pdaxrom forum.

I have the Belkin - F5D5050 USB 1.1 10/100 Ethernet Adapter that works out of the box in pdaxii13.
it's in the second pic.
I got it from Radioshack.
