I tried to install angstrom following this guide:
http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/c1000...ll-instructions
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.

Good to hear the instructions worked.

The GUI for installing software seems to have some isuses runnning on my C1000 so I use the command line which works fine.

USB is a bit of an issue, though Ive found some scripts that work fine. Il add them to the post.

As I said in the before you start bit. its going to take a bit of time to get everything to work. The good news though is Angstrom is closer to a "normal" Linux distro so there are quite a few work rounds out there for getting more out of your Z.

After 2 weeks of tweaking and a couple of reinsalls, I'm now more or less sorted with my Angstrom setup. The only bits that remain to "fix" are

WEP / WPA for WIFI
WIFI applet not showing connection information
On Screen Keyboard layout, no , and repeat speed too quick
GUI for MPlayer (Kino2 alike?)
Chinese language support (guess I just need the right UNICode font + an input method)

And then the bits that Cacko SHARP can only dream of

Printing using CUPS
Citrix / ICA client
