Post linux on palm pilot

I am exploring the possibilities of getting linux up on a palm pilot. Right now i am testing various versions with xcopilot to see if it is actually worth buying a palm for. I have had most succes with the snapgear version of uClinux, but i still can't seem to get anything that might be useful on an actual palm. I need to know how i can get a window manager, or at least a terminal on the palm's screen. Are there any other dirstros out there that would be easier/more suitable for this kind of application? -or- how would it be possible to get something useful from my snapgear distro?

Any help, suggestions or redirectors to good sources of information would be helpful. Thanks,
