Just as a note- I have pdaxrom working mostly on an sl5000.
Using a 1gb cf card and 256mb sd card.
The basic install works fine but is, of course, somewhat lacking.
I have had a lot of trouble with all the ROMS I have tried in SOME fashion, and the biggest of the bunch is the inability to get software installed from the internet.
I have finally gotten this working with pdaXrom by grabbing the copy of the feed and hosting it myself on my pc.
Disk space now becomes a problem, of course, as the sl5000 has very little onboard to start with.
I have followed the suggestion of moving some base directories to a card, but the problem I hit with this is getting enough space while NOT wrecking something..
If I reboot, my install is hosed.
So my question now is what can I move safely and does anyone have suggestions besides what is in the thread on sl5500
