I've tryed quite a few roms on my Z's starting fron sharp original, Cacko, OE and pdaXrom.

Although pdaXrom is the on that so far I've used most happly I find it on the whole far from satisfactory.

I've spoken to a few happy Z debian users and adding it to my limited x86 debian experience (but very simple with apt) I've decided to give it a try.
I'd like to try it on my C1000.

I found this debian Z rootfs : http://matrixmen.free.fr/zaurus/debian/zau..._071201.tar.bz2
would this be a good starting point ?

Does that rootfs also contain the kernel to be used ? ... if not where do I get a stable and uptodate kernel ?

Without making drastic changes to the current installation on my C1000 can I use u-boot to boot whatever kernel must be used without having to recompile it ? ... or is it necessary to use the original sharp boot loader ?

My idea would be to put the rootfs on SD and use u-boot to load kernel from flash and mount root from SD.

If u-boot is a no go without recompiling kernel where can I get a good kexec working alternative ?
