go to handhelds.org and flash it with linux
then fiddle over the seriel port and you have yourself a nice networkud SD card reader or networked thumb print reader (or anything else you can hack together)

BTW i have remove a screen, how can I be sure that its working? if i plug it without battery will it boot?

it should boot without a battery.
what you need is a serial cable (i belive you need this to flash the pda anyway). plug it into your computer and use ethier hyperterminal or kermit to connect to the serial port and then follow the handhelds.org flashing guide some info is here: http://www.handhelds.org/moin/moin.cgi/HpIpaqH5400
but i expect that if you have the knowlage to flash a pda finding more info on this page should not be a problem

From first hand experience replacing a 5555 screen. It's a pain in the ass. The only people who carry it is Foxconn, which is a Chinese company based in Hong Kong. I ordered a screen and then had to wait 3 months for it to ship. The actual replacing part was cake though.

It had a "free ride" from the 3rd floor
