Hello all!

I recently bought a zaurus (sl-3100) and I tried some roms.

I found that the one which meets my requirements now is Cacko, but I would like to develop and test for Angstrom/Openzaurus ( which I think is the one with more future ).

Would be possible to me to install Cacko and Openzaurus in the same machine? I can see that Cacko is only installable in the flash memory, and it would overwrite the altboot boot loader ( and the other way around ).

Is there any way to move Cacko from the nand to a CF/SD card? or to the hard disk?
Is there any way to install a boot loader like altboot or uboot while Cacko is in the nand ( without damaging them) ?

Thank you very much for your help!

You can install cacko onto flash, install angstrom on harddisk (both the normal defaults) then get the cacko zImage file, use kexec in Angstrom to boot it and it will boot cacko from flash from inside Angstrom.

altboot is not installed in flash, you have confused it with something else I think.

For the sake of completeness and future reference, what XorA said is possible, and after trying it I made a small howto some time ago:

I would guess you'll have to reboot, since Cacko and Angstrom have entirely different kernels.
