Linux on an iPAQ


Ok, so I got this new iPAQ and went looking around for a linux distro for it. But all of the ones that I came across were for a 36xx series iPAQ (mine is a 3835).

What to do?

Please don't tell me I'm stuck with Windows...

While gathering news for linux.box.sk I just came across this CNN piece, maybe check handhelds.org as well...

Thanks

I checked it out and it looks good (now I just have to get up the nerve to potentially "brickify" my iPAQ)

Thanks, I've seen that one, but it's for the 36xx series, and it's gigantic! (it requires a microdrive to run it)
