I dont like the idea of full HDD install on 3100! Its a waste of 128mb and bad use af the HDD!!! ()spin up/down all the time)
128MB is nothing compared to 4GB HDD so it is not much waste. All the file modifications, log files, installing, symlinking and whatnot burns out flash and eventually will break it. It is much more mess compared to just having rootfs on HDD. Spinning up and more power usage is not much of a problem. I already have swapfile and most applications installed to HDD so it will not make any difference really.

I had thought you could install the rootfs package to the hd and chroot..or something like. I haven't tried it.
I would like to see a different partitioning scheme, though. /home /var and /tmp really ought to be on the hd, or at least the option should exist. Maybe do something lile a /boot and a pim data or something on the flash? A ton o the read only system stuff? I'm Not at all sure how that would would be done, and clealry I haven't thought too much about it, but the idea is interesting.
This will only complicate everything even more. I really like the clean approach in OZ on C3x00, too bad the OZ package collection sucks.
It would be cool if there was option when installing pdaXrom to select whether to use flash or HDD for rootfs.
