I use cbrpager which is in the feeds. It's basic but quite nice as it reads cbr and cbz files (rar'ed and zip'd images), I use xmodmap to modify the side buttons of my C3200 so I can navigate easily when the screen is folded down.

Also I recommend scaling all the images to 640xXXX so you can view them landscape at the native resolution, if you don't it will scale them for you but it's not very good quality and makes text harder to read.

I don't know if gqview is in the pdaxrom feeds but it's the best image viewer I've found for X11. it has high quality scaling, allows you to fit to width (hit the 'w' key), fit to height (the 'h' key), it quickly redraws the image when you're paging through in full screen and has good default key bindings for the Zaurus. AFAIK it can't read compressed files (.cbz, .cbr, .zip, .rar, etc) but most (all?) of those files are just a zip or a rar containing numbered jpg's or png's. Once you unpack them and put them on the zaurus, gqview is perfectly happy to pages through them.

I think gqview is the default viewer that loji is complaining about ohmy.gif
