I do not own a SL-6000 , the following steps show how my SL-5600 that was upgraded to Original Sharp ROM version 1.32 works with my Mac which runs on OS 10.3.4:
Firstly, I download the USB driver at http://www.lucid-cake.net/osx_zaurus_usb/index_en.html
to establish ethernet linkage with my Mac .
Next, you need to activate PC Link Utilities (I hope it should be bundled with SL-6000) two times. First with the "USB -I/O (default)" option followed by OK and the second time with "USB -TCP/IP (advanced)" option followed by OK too.
Having established TCP/IP linkage, you can mount the whole Zaurus onto Mac's desktop by simply issuing this Samba instruction "smb://192,168.129.201". Click Ok when prompting for password.
But I have a problem with the mounted volumes from Zaurus. It does not allow me to copy files that are bigger than the available internal memory. I still do not know the reason.
To solve the file transfer problem, I install FB VNC server, http://killefiz.de/zaurus/showdetail.php?app=21
, on the Zaurus and use Chicken of the VNC, http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?forum_id=243785
, as VNC client on the Mac desktop. By runing Midnight Commander MC, http://killefiz.de/zaurus/showdetail.php?app=221
, followed by activating the remote ftp mode (/#cd ftp:firstname.lastname@example.org) from the VNC client to mount the Mac's file folders on one of the columes of mc, you can now transfer files from Zaurus to the Mac in both directions at ease. (PS: I set the VNC server to provide double screen size on VNC client for ease of operation)
I hope the above will help decide your choice of Zaurus model which can work with Mac smoothly.
