As the Zaurus wifi only supports WEP (and in my case B networking having on an older card), I was wondering what solutions other users implemented to maintain network connectivity in a WPA world?

A second access point would work, or maybe a guest account created with alternate firmware such as DD-WRT, or even keep it wired with a LAN card.

Just curious,

Geek Stuff 4 U has the Sharp Netwalker PC-T1 on sale for $300 til the end of the month. Happened across this deal while looking for a PC-Z1.

Looks like Sharp is trying to hit the "no keyboard needed" market.

I did some google searches today and found out there was an experimental build of Poky for N800. Then, came across the link to http://pokylinux.org/autobuild/poky/ that has some 770 files (however seemingly no kernel, or .bin for that matter).

I'll admit, I know nothing other then what I read (which is limited by what I can find it seems), but I'd like to give it or other alternatives a try. I have Hackers on it now, which runs ok when it runs. I know there seems to be a lot more support for the n800 but with the price drop a few months back there should be a decent user base for the classic 770.

Anyone else do any dabbling or should I just kick the 770 to the curb and pick up a n800 for xmas?

Ok, I am not new to any of this so although it seems like a newb post I'm really just trying to save myself time trying everything out.

I have a 3100. Ran pdaXrom on my old 860, had OZ on the new 3100 for a long time, then went back to Cacko because 'it just worked' better for my needs.

Since then, my Z has sat in a drawer for months, can't even remember how long actually. Needless to say that is a lot of investment doing nothing. I want to use it again, but don't need a PDA ... I want it to be a mini-laptop. Not a test machine, but something actually useable that I can count on working.

Enter pdaXrom beta3. Not ready to plunge into the new boot loader, and this seems to be the best/last stable. So here are my questions:

First, best partition scheme? My current thougths were 121meg nand root, 128meg swap on HD, and rest of HD one big ext2 volume. Default mounting puts /mnt/ide for the HD. Does anyone recomend any symbolic links to folders (like home or opt) so that application installs are better/easier? Or has the ipkg -d ide install option been made more stable? I am very used to OZ loading to HD and having the full 4gig as root so need to see how you pdaXrom guys do it.

And second, best window manager replacement? I really wanted to run xfce4 as I use that on a lot of my desktop/servers, plus it would wow my co-workers. However, I see fluxbox is getting popular, as is icewm ... or even just adding Rox desktop to default install. All I really need is something where editing menus isnt' too hard and that provides a window list. I know it's opinionated but any feedback would help.

Thanks in advance to everyone, hopefully with a little learning and some time my Z will be back at being productive once again.
