it could, but you would need to be more technically capable to do it which from the sounds of it you aren't. so unless you brush up on your knowledge it would be very difficult
besides, of all the media for the Zaurus, SD is the slowest and hence the worst option to running apps off.
and yes, 128mb is tiny. that's why there are c3x00 models
Looks like slightly less than 2/3 the speed based on a 40mb dd from the device to /dev/null I think I'm alright with that. Currently I install almost everything to it anyways, so it's just as slow, and I end up with a buttload of symlinks all over the place.
As far as technical capability goes, I think I could probably handle it just fine with a couple hints. I guess really I'd just need to know how to set the location of the root filesystem during boot. Previously I hacked around with some bind mounts in the fstab, but it was pretty cludgy.
I tried messing with the init scripts, trying to mount the sd card, followed by a chroot, but it didn't work. I'm guessing the SD driver isn't built directly into the kernel, and may not be loaded yet at that point.
Am I barking up the wrong tree?
