So I got my stuff working and I can see the zaurus, ssh etc.
Im using the OZ 3.5.2 rom, and the desktop is debian 3.1.
when I sftp to the zaurus and transfer files though, its transferring at like 4kb a second, granted its writing to either cf or sd, but still, thats pretty nasty. wget d/l things way faster.
perhaps I will through the stuff on the web and wget it all....
