Hi all,

I've bought a Simpad SL4 on "the internets". I want to experiment with a Linux distribution. Which is the most common / supported / "easy" to start with?

The Simpad has / is:
  • Windows CE 4.1 Build 908
  • Software variant S842-SI-INT-152
  • Boatloader: Siemens Switzerland V2.
On a CD i've the following software:
  • Some docs (datacable, datasheets of bootloader (?)(i can put them on the internet))
  • A folder with images:
  • CE41 / sl4_winCEnet41_ENG.bin is this the one that is installed?
  • HPC2000
  • some images for the CL4, SLC, TSINUS
  • some CE & Windows software
  • serload.exe
  • pbl-simpad-1.0
  • jtag-0.4
  • include-0.4
When something goes wrong, do i have enough to go back? What is the rescue plan to restore the old CE on my Simpad? Is there a way to copy the Rom 1:1 to my harddisk? That would be ideal.
