Hello all,

just discovered OpenBSD: it looks very interesting, and I would like to try it.

I already did some reading, but wanted to make sure, that I will be OK before I proceed ( I have a C3100 ).

So here are my questions:

- is it correct, that I can install OpenBSD on a CF card ( 512 MB ) - and that will leave my original Sharp ROM intact?
- reading
ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/snapsho.../INSTALL.zaurus
and
http://web.kssp.upd.edu.ph/barryg/zaurus/cf.html
will tell me all that needs to be done? Or are there better / more detailed / simpler step-by-step instructions somewhere?

Thank you for your help.

Miklos

PS: What is WD1 in "sudo fdisk wd1 "? Is WD1 the CF card?

Yes. Do read up on various threads here.

INSTALL.zaurus is accurate, I tested cf.html notes. Do send your
comments, and if you find anything inaccurate.

Within OpenBSD, yes.



Mabuhay! barryg

Barry,

thank you for the encouraging answer. As my 3100 is still brand new, I will spend a couple days to learn the Linux side and the overall operation of it ( it is quite different after multiple Palm, Pocket PC and Psion units...).

Then I will follow the OpenBSD instructions...

I will post an update here.

Thanks again,

Miklos
