Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

ah, it has a low powered usb host port and can be plugged in via usb to a computer so that its on board memory can be used as a flash drive.
it has an SD slot too.
uses one flash disk for ram and primary OS, secondary onboard flash disk with 1gb.
theres another one with 384kb on it... im guessing boot flash or something
windows CE says the processor is an ARM926EJ-S
I bet tinycore_2.0 would rock on that if it'll run it off usb/flash
what format SD, fat32?
what format flashdrives?
2 onboard flashdrives?
use readyboost for ram flashdisk or what?
I got new custom tinycore_2.0_grub.iso, uses grub to boot iso
goes on flash/usb real easy; either syslinux/fat32 or grub/ext2/3
I'll give you link and instructions if you want or
just follow tc install directions
mine has everything you need pre-installed(50MB)
incl flash10, grub, cfdisk, OSS, xmms, and alot of stuff
There's also microcore, but first lets see if it'll install and boot...
so where do you wanna put a distro, on 1gb onboard flash?
sounds good, link me, ill give you a yell wether I kill it or not
ill probly use onboard, i can load it up using direct link no problems if its just drag and drop, main issue will be bypassing windows CE boot, which is off the 32 meg inbuilt flash which might be hard booting... or something. im not technically minded but I can stumble my way through most stuff.
couple more things, you will have to install syslinux to either flash card or
onboard flash- can you do that with it hooked to a PC?
meaning, can you mount it, access it, etc? the onboard 1gb i mean?
probably of course
what are you running now, windows or linux?
you have access to linux PC or livecd?
you don't have to burn iso above to cd; just copy contents to usb/flash,etc
you will need to edit syslinux.cfg for fat32
in a linux pC, how does it identify it, as a sdb1, or etc?
so, tell me what's up with that and we'll go from there
it's real easy dude.
downloads going to take a while.
ive got both windows and linux systems running, the device its self is running windows on a 64mb flash drive which it dual uses for ram and swap.
says file system is Vfat.
hmmmm dont think I have access to the booting partition... if i put it on the 1 gig then move that to the boot and.... hmmmm....
partition manager says its unallocated space but it is aparrently sdb
mkay, got the iso extracted and now on the 1 gig harddrive. doesnt seem to boot grub, just goes straight to windows ce
hmm had a further look, managed to wipe the system disk but apparently wince loads itself to rom while running and immediatly re-installs on start up, the only way I can think of seems to be if I can either load linux from inside wince then use linux to kill wince and wipe rom, system memory, then replace it with linux boot.
or some program to kill the rom so that it will load from the linux install on the system disk rather than wiping it and replaceing it with wince as it does right now.
