Hi greguu,

thanks for the update. Please keep us updated about your work on 6.2, I hope not too much code has been left out which would prevent its use on our Z's. Sad to hear about the wireless drivers, though it was inevitable... I'm wondering is if it would be possible to use newer network cards on our Zauruses. An USB wifi dongle, connected via an USB type B-female A connector might be our best chance, though it won't look pretty. This way we wouldn't be limited to 802.11b connections, which might be already not supported anymore by some routers. In the past USB host adapter for the CF slot were available too, though I'm not sure if they are still available somewhere.
