About using wifi cf card with OZ ... I'm using a XI-825 cf card which uses a prism 2.5 chipset. It gets detected as a Sandisk Connect card and seems to connect to my notebook in ad-hoc mode.

Question:
1. How do I verify that its connected correctly? I cannot ping the notebook using the notebook ip.
2. I have the wifi in my notebook setup to share its internet connection via the LAN port. When I fix #1 above, I should be able to connect to internet already right?

I'm using Windows XP on my notebook.

I am running OZ/GPE Hentges 3.5.4.1 with cardfs on collie to trial it before moving my akita over.

Ideas?

ok, replying to my own questions:

I managed to get connection to internet with static ip address:

1. HostPC:
IP: 169.254.159.x
Netmask: 255.255.0.0

2. Zaurus:
IP: 169.254.159.y
Netmask: 255.255.0.0
Gateway: 169.254.159.x
DNS: According to DNS ip given by ISP

Enable Internet Connection Sharing on Host PC on the network connection that is the link to ISP.
