iPAQ 2210 - installiong Linux: problem with changing bootloader


I have a problem with installing linux on my pocketPC iPAQ 2210 (from HP,
was Compaq before) running now under winCE.

As mentionned in a lot of HOWTOs, I have loaded both Bootblaster-1.18.exe and Bootldr-1.18.bin.

Unfortunately, when copied on the PDA and launched, the program stops and
quits immediatly without any reason (and without any error). I just can see
the correct program's boot shot for few tenths of second.

Meanwhile, after having loaded another version of the bootblaster
(bootblaster3900.exe), it finally runs...

But I was rapidly disappointed when, after having backuped winCE and
bootloader for winCE, I tried to load the bootldr.bin and received the
following message:

bootldr.bin is not a valid bootloader image

I have tried with different versions of bootldr (and only after having
verified the md5) but it was always the same.

Some idea?

Thanks a lot for all usefull informations.
