1 Gig SD Card

Yup, very interesting. The larger the SD card in my Zaurus SL-5500, the better.

I store a lot of maps (png files) for use with qpeGPS navigation software on my current 256mb SD card. Storing mp3s, films, photos, ebooks, etc on a pda increases its usefulness. If I had a 1Gb SD card, I would probably fdisk it, and format it with an ext2 filesystem on the first partition /dev/hda1 for holding application/game binaries, and a fat16 file system on the second partition /dev/hda2, for holding the photos, mp3s, ebooks, etc. This way, I could whip the SD card out of the Zaurus and into an usb2 card-reader, connected to a Windows (or Linux) pc. Then transfer of data to/from the card would proceed at maximum speed.

I haven\'t decided what would be the ideal split (maybe 250mb ext2 / 750mb fat16) for my needs. Any suggestions?

Edo, please let me know  if you succeed in ceating 2 partitions and have them both automounted.
I tried to to this with a CF microdrive but could never manage to have the automounter see both partitions correctly (of cours emanually mounting them was fine!).
