The only thing I'm missing is the stylus, but that's easy to replace.

I'm not sure exactly whch forum to post this in as the problem I am having is not exaclty OpenBSD specific, however it did happen when I tried to install OpenBSD.

Well, I think I may have just partially bricked my new C3100. I tried installing OpenBSD and accidentally said yes to using the whole disk for OpenBSD, then exited FDISK without making any changes, and rebooted to retry. Now, it refuses to boot. I'm thinking there should be a way to recover from this, as all I've lost is simply hard drive data. I can get into the diag menu and tried re-flashing the backup of the NAND ROM provided by Tri-Soft on their website, but unsurprisingly, no dice. I would imagine one way to recover would be to simply get a hard drive image, put it on a CF card and try restoring that from the diag menu and starting all over again.

However, this does make me wonder just exactly how the 3100 boots. The 3000 does not have enough flash to hold the OS, and would have to have critical pieces of the OS in hard drive. However, I would imagine that the 3100 would be similar to the 1000, in that most of the OS(at least the important parts and booting bits) would be in the flash and only extras such as applications and data would be on the hard drive. This is obviously false, or else I'd still have a working Zaurus. If anyone has detailed information as to how the 3100 boots up, I would love to hear it. As well, how much seperation between flash and hard drive is there? And why can't we just put a tiny version of OpenBSD in a flash image and use that to jumpstart the OS? Otherwise(to my understanding anyway) the 128MB flash rom would remain original and OpenBSD would only have access to the hard drive.

Thanks for any input/advice.
