So I remember seeing these things years ago when they first came out and I drooled over them but had no money, as I was a poor lad. Now, I am still a poor lad, but the price dropped WAY down and I picked up a C760 with wifi bluetooth and other goodies for 140$ on ebay! It looks pretty groovy with an old version of pdaxrom on it, (not sure exactly what version it is, but the kernel is 2.4.20) but I'm having some problems I would love to sort out and get this kid up and kickin.

First, I flipped through the user manual with the USB driver instructions already... and I followed them, ready to point windoze in the direction of the network USB drivers that came on the cd, right?

Wrong, it installed it automatically, never gave me a chance to choose anything. I went into the device manager and it won't let me choose them there either, even if I uninstall and then plug it back in. I tried this with all my usb ports and they all detected a C860 and installed it automatically.

So my first question is, do I need to open up regedit to uninstall those drivers? And won't this just happen again?

My next issue, that will probably clear up once I can transfer files, is how to do a clean OS installation with my choice of ROM. I believe I threw one (newer pdaxrom) on the SD card, but I am unsure how to install the rom from it, or if this is even possible. If it's not possible to do it from the sd card, how would I go about it?

I know there is multiple ways of transfering files.... so should I just utilize the blue tooth or wifi card and ditch the file transfer altogether, if I don't really care about syncing to my email?

Well, give me some stuff to think about, I'll be browsing around and reading up.
