I'm getting the itch to mess around with some other distros out there for my c3100 but I do not want to lose the exact setup I have now. I am using the original sharp rom heavily customized to exactly my needs. So I want to know what you guys out there recomend to do to back it up so that if I want to go back to it I can restore it completely as if nothing had happened.

I am thinking first of all to go into the D+M menu and use the tool in there to backup the internal 4gig drive onto an external 8gig cf I have...then do a NAND backup. But that leaves the actual installed and currently running os in flash...how do I back that up? A NAND is just a backup of the original rom as if I reformated back to factory defaults right? Or does it backup EVERYTHING?

Or, can I just dd the whole thing onto my f card? But that leaves the trouble of how do I restore it.

Thanks for any help...I hope to eventually get a dual boot setup so I can have a more modern os on my zaurus for doing certain things and then still be able to go back to my old sharp rom for the japanese/pim/music stuff I have come to love on the zaurus.
