My apologies if these questions have been asked before.

I just acquired a Zaurus SL-C3200 from Conics (Thanks, Brett!). It has the default Sharp ROM. ROM version is 1.02 JP. English conversion was done by Conics.

I am facing 2 problems:

1. When I insert an Ambicom WL1100C-CF card, the card is recognised and the little globe icon appears. However, the little light on the card itself does not turn on. When I try to connect to a network, it fails.
I tried the card on a Sigmarion III running WinCE4.1, and after installing drivers, the card worked fine.

2. I am using Win2K. I followed Trisoft's instructions from here for the sync installation. I used the USBDrivers/Network directory from the Sharp CDROM for the drivers. Drivers were installed, and when I plugged the Zaurus in, it was recognised. The NDIS driver shows up in Device Manager.

However, as per the instructions, when I try to telnet to the device, or ping it, it fails.

Am I doing something wrong ? Or is there a systematic issue that causes both problems ?
Please help!

Flashing Cacko is insanely easy:

-Download the files: (somewhere on Tyrannozaurus, still looking)

-Backup your Z to a FAT16 SD/CF card (only have one card in the Z):
--remove battery and AC
--hold D and M
--insert AC
--find the "nand backup" option
--select it
--copy the SYSC320.DBK file to somewhere safe

-Extract the files to the root of the SD card

-Insert SD into the Z

-Remove all power again

-Insert battery and AC

-Hold OK, then hit the power switch. You should have a Japanese menu

-Chooses option 4 (flash)

-Say "Y" to the warning

-Choose SD/CF, whichever you're using

-Choose the "flash" option

-Reboot into Cacko.

I hope that was clear enough.

EDIT: Wow, that was unnecessary:


There's all you need!

(Full version has lots of stuff that can't be removed, more stuff "just works," Lite is Full with stuff taken out that you can reinstall at will).
