I have just aquired an H3630 with an expansion slot. A few hours spent looking at my linux options suggests that I could install linux on an expansion card and then not have to flash the ROM. This sounds like a safe option to try things out
My first question is: does it matter very much what type of memory I purchase (or how much)?
My wife uses Compact Flash with her camera so that sounds like a good option to me. Then I read that there are different quality CF cards. I was looking to get 1GB. The "Pro" style cards that offer faster memory access are about 30% more expensive. For the use I will be giving it is it worth it or will a basic card do the job?
A much broader question is: am I better off with , say, Familiar Linux and OPIE rather than stick with the OS it has installed? I think I can guess what the reaction could be on this forum
