Not sure whether anyone will be interested but I have written a CF card applet which is designed to replace the original Sharp cardmon and netmon applets.

It mounts data cards (obviously) but also controls serial (modem) cards.

It has 2 additional optional modules which allow SMS (texts) and Voice.

I am using it on a SL-C3100 running the Sharp ROM with an Audiovox RTM-8000 card, which is the only setup I have tested it on.

You can read more about it, starting at http://humbug.me.uk/zaurus/hbzcard.README.FIRST.htm

DaveL - very interested in this as I stopped using my RTM-8000 card due to the clunky mount/unmount of the Sharp applet - and card sticks out too far to be left in! Yes, I know your app's written around SL-C3100 but thought I'd give it a spin on my SL-C860 anyway. Here's what happened:-

Installs but gives a repeated error about (USB??? - not quick enough to read) - reboots as expected.

"L" in taskbar.

L becomes M as it recognises my CF memory (actually an Olympus XD adaptor) - Photo app. can see photos OK.

Doesn't seem to notice when my Trendnet Ethernet card is inserted. L remains L :(

Sees my Audiovox card and briefly shows M, followed by hourglass while amber LED flashes as it tries to ... (find network???) Problem could well be an expired/out-of-date SIM card or my laziness not setting up network in /etc/ppp/peers & options.

Uninstall gives possibly similar error as install but reboots fine. Cards recognised (did there used to be a memory icon? - can't remember)

Cheers anyway!
