Thanks for your thoughts.
I too had thought about connecting the Z to my Mac’s ethernet port, but I am reluctant to spend any money on a solution that is untried. I am a student and cannot afford to by a piece of equipment that is not going to get used.
The only reason I needed OSX on my G3 desktop was for the Zaurus. Unless I was doing something wrong, Qtopia 1.7 for OSX (with USB driver of course) does not sync with the 5600 (I have the latest Sharp ROM). I get the home directory as expected on the desktop of OS X, but no sync.
HOWEVER, Virtual PC 4 (runs in OS 9) does recognize the Z. I don't use VPC because registry errors have plagued every install of MS Windows in the emulator. This means that, indirectly at least, OS 9 DOES detect the Z.
I mainly use the PDA for scheduling. Is there anyway to export my PIM data via CF/SD card to OS 9 (MS Office 2001 etc.)?
