I decided that I will flash ROM to OpenZaurus ROM. but I am not sure what I should do before, and I don't know how the device is working.

please correct me if I am NOT right, or point me to good web where can I find more details, thanks.

SL-6000 has 64MB + 64MB:
:first 64MB is NAND where original ROM is stored - slow chip
:second 64MB is RAM where OS is running - fast chip

- I did install several programs, I did choose Internal flash, it's mean that it was instaled in ffirst 64MB or in second?
- when I will flash ROM with OpenZaurus what will happend, will original ROM disappear? If I will not like that shal I go back to original ROM
- I did install programs using original ROM, I did install to internal flash, let's say it did take 2MB of space, so if I will stay on OpenZaurus and another sets of programs, so should I uninstall those programs and get 2MB more free space before flashing to OpenZaurus?

OZ will overwite the flashROM. ROMs (the Sharp one included) are stored in the flashROM, the RAM is only used to run things, and its contents are lost when you reboot/flash/etc. It's like a PC - think of the flashROM as being your HDD.

Therefore you can probably only install to flashROM (or storage card).

Your previous ROM will disappear completely, if you want it back you'll need to download the images and flash back to it.
