I'm trying to get my Zaurus SL6000 to be able to communicate in a very basic way with a micro controller I have (with a ZThinCable). I'd like to move up to writing my own apps that can use it later... but thats a different story.

So, anyways, the microcontroler is set to put out a continious stream of 123123123123123. This shows up fine in serial-monitors for windows. The problem I've run into: I can figure out how to de-assert DTR in linux. DTR resets the microcontroler, so having DTR asserted hangs it in a loop. I know I have the right port however. I made it so a light on the microcontroller is on when running, and off while being reset. The moment I
cat /dev/ttyS0
the light turns off and the console just hangs there. No input because the device is constantly resetting. However, if I open a second terminal and
killall cat
the light comes back on. I've done some googling, and most sites say that I need to set
stty -dtrxoff
but, the stty on my Z doesnt recognize that as a valid argument. Help?

My school will not give anyone wireless access unless they have anti-virus software. I tried to expalin that it is a PDA and that a virus (especially for the zaurus) was very unlikely. "We're sorry, but I'm sure that someone makes it and until you have it, you will not be permitted wireless access."

So, is there such a thing? And if there isn't. Anyone know any articles or Sharp press releases or anything that go "you are an idiot, viruses?"

P.S. This really sucks

Actually, can any of you make something that looks like anti-virus software? Given there level of expertise, it would probably work fine >.<

I've been thinking about buying a 6000L (would be my first zaurus). I've been watching amazon and searching the 'net but the prices are all over the map. What price range would be considered reasonable?
