My brother once showed me windows XP running on his (now mine) Zaurus SL C-1000. I tried looking around on how to do this but nothing came up. Is this possible, or was he pulling my leg?

It will be so slow if it worked there would not even be a point. Running dosbox on the zaurus is even slowed down a little.

Why would you want to run such a crappy OS on a very small/old/slower device anyway?

I have a multitude of PortableApps on the CF card and it would be a great convenience to use them on the Zaurus.

Since they are compiled for x86 (as is Windows XP) they won't work anyway.
