A while back I started a thread seeking some advice on teaching my collie some new tricks. The old thread is here.
http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=23557

Well it's still not working. Based on the advice in the previous thread it would seem that the files I'm trying to use are somehow corrupt. So what I'm looking for now is there someone out there in Zaurus land that would be willing to put the nessesary files onto a CF card for me. For a fee of course. The idea would be that all I have to do is follow the flashing instructions with this card.
What I would like is OZ (the most recent) / Opie / Card fs. The card fs is that one where the OS will reside on the SD card thus freeing up a bunch of the installed ram. I have a PNY 1gb card for that duty.

cheers,

kurtis

I fear the brush chipper will be the next and final stop for this collie.

Hi, I don't know if you have already achieve your purpose. I think that if you want the files in order to install OZ there will be someone at OZ subforum that will be glad to provide you with.

As far as I know, you have to format CF with FAT16, to copy the files inside the card and then just follow the install instructions.

Do you have SL-5500 or 5000?, I'm a bit confused. It's the 5000 and early model? If so, maybe it needs special rom. I don't know.

I'm afraid I'm not the smartest zaurus user.

Good luck.

That original problem did eventually get solved however other problems kept popping up. I found that this collie to be about the most unstable contraption ever built. I know now why it was put up on ebay for me to buy. My patients finally wore out and well... that collie is now in collie heaven.
