I'm not an expert but i will try to give you some advices.
First you sad you have a Simpad CL4, this machine have 32MB rom and
16MB ram and i think it's not possible to install a familiar image nor gpe nor opie (of course it's about linux os)
If you have windows ce installed i suggest to try gowerpoint uBook (www.gowerpoint.com) it's not free but it's a very good ebook reader for wince.
I have a SL4 Simpad and now i'm testing the third release candidate of familiar (i like very much opie) and i have installed justreader and i was a littlebit dissapointed about this software but i will try to succed with something else, maybe fbreader if i will succeed with installing.
Sorry for my bad english and welcome to the club.

I don't have a Simpad but I do use Opie on 3 different devices. I would suggest you give opie-reader a try. It works with everything I want to read except fb2 format... for that I use fbreader.

Hi it is possible to use Linux on 16MB Flash class SIMpads like CL4 WP50 or T-Sinus Pad.

There is now also a description on how to install it on such a SIMpad.

Yes it's right, my mistake, i see it is possible to install linux on cl4 and it is a very good thing. In the meantime i must tell you that i flashed the new opie 0.8.4 from familiar and i have installed also fbreader and it is working quite well...
