Having installed ZUBUNTU for the first time, here are some bits that people might find of use

after loging in the first time run


to calibrate your touch screen

run killall tskeys

to get some free memory

ensure dhcp is running properly by changing the 102 and 103 entries for dhcp in /etc/passwd to 0

get your wifi / network running by looking on the forums

once you have internet connectivity, install synaptic so you can find packages with

apt-get install synaptic

now you're ready to rock

Next thing to do is to make dual boot with cacko.
Zubuntu does not handle hardware acceleration for video (or I cant do it properly).
Cacko is fine for old software, video, some games. Iqnotes are missing for zubuntu.

To have dual boot working do:
Use other linux box to do this:
Copy all files from SD-card to somewhere else. Use mc and do not copy /media or /mnt (there are some links and that can make troubles smile.gif )

Make backup: dd if=/dev/mmcblk of=/tmp/backup.card bs=1M

Then make cfdisk and partition card to two or more partitions.
One for cacko kernel (small 10-16mb is enough) and one for zubuntu (rest of sd-card).
Make ext2 on both partitions (mkfs.ext2).
Put boot dir on both partitions (mkdir boot).

On small partition put kernel image, command-line and description.
On big partition put files copied from sd-card at the beginning.

And voila. My c1000 boots to zubuntu or to cacko.
Some helpful threads (source of whole knowledge about this):

One more thing:
Cacko does not like my sd-card which doesnt have a partition. I tried to make dual booting on two cards(to avoid copying files back and forth) but cacko kernel was filling dmesg log with messages about "unreadable something" (I dont remember exactly). After making partition all is fine.
But anyway I found new target for my mobile life: sharp netwalkre pc z1 smile.gif
