Can anyone tell me how to format a compactflash card to ext2 on using Windows XP pro. Thanks[/size][size=24]
lardman
It can't be done without buying commercial software.

Why? Why not use your Z?

Would that be#mkfs.ext2 /dev/compactflash
lardman
mkfs.ext2 /dev/hda1

Is that the same for the sl-6000? /hda1

Yes for the cf-card

Do I need fdisk installed first?
DrWowe
If it absolutely has to be done on Windows, you could use PartitionMagic. (but it's commercial, like lardman said)
lardman
No you don't need fdisk, but mkfs.* sometimes/always(?) comes with fdisk. So if you don't have mkfs then find fdisk on killefiz and you'll get mkfs.ext2 too.

# Unpack if you haven't done so already.
# Don't forget the 'p' switch, or you'll get wrong permissions.
./gnu-tar -C debroot -xvzpf zaurus-debian-*.tgz ...... Does anyone know what the 'p' sitch means. I'm logged in as root {su} but it still comes up permission denied.

Does anyone know how to get permission ?
