I tried to install angstrom following this guide:
But it failed, and i was afraid i had broken my zaurus.

Luckily i was able to install cacko again.
Is there any guide to installing Angstrom on top of cacko? I just want all the old stuff deleted.

OK Updated the WIKI Docs. Now has links to relevant files. Will update with my progress getting various stuff working on the C1000. Currently the only issue I have is lack of space on the root.

The C1000 Angstrom image configures the Onboard flash with two 64MB partitions one mounted as Root the other as Home which means I'm running out of space to install apps to root.

Although ipkg is set up to install to either, if you install a package to Home then you have to manually link the files into the root file system. I'm considering writing a script to run through the /home/packages/usr directory and create links in /usr but I'm concerned it will do more harm than good. Currently I install a package and then run it form the command line and see where it fails and link that file into its root location, takes time but stops messing things up.

More info to go onto the WIKI. I'm a firm believer in documentation helping a distro, and think that UBUNTUs success is as much to do with its documentation as its code and ease of use.
