    I want to run linux on my old 720 jornada has anyone here ever done this. I used to use a zarus which was linux it was best pda ever next to my T3 palm but I feel this jornada would be perfict for it. suggestions please


    Oh its a 206 strong arm with 32 megs on board and a 1 gig cf card also has a 3 com wireless pcmia card that is hardware driven and an open smart card slot which is useless. I also have the extended battery which will last 15 hours.

    Worked out great Ill post some screens later jlime is the program is a bit on the slow side so in this case its better to leave it alone if you want speed yet if you want it to do more than this maybe the answer. I have 2 so I can do booth for now I need a hardware driven wireless card for linux or have one of you guys write me a custom driver for this card which did work in my laptop with linux so I'm not sure why just yet need to play some more with it.
