I am afraid that this is going to be fiddly.
If anybody knows a simpler method then fire away.

For amsn to work you also need to install Toolkit tk8.5, but tk8.5 is a deb package, so you need to convert from deb to rpm using alien8.73.
alien is available as a tarball (tar.gz) so you need to unzip and install it first.

In no particular order, these links may be of use to you.

As root (#) in Terminal:

Type apt-get install tk8.5

Details at: http://packages.debian.org/sid/tk8.5

You also need to install alien8.73 to convert between rpm and deb packages.

Installing tar.gz packages.

Good luck.

Sorry, I am not quite sure what you mean by that question. Please expand.

Another thought would be to replace Linpus Lite with, say, Ubuntu 8.10 or Linux Mint since both use debs.

Wine should not be a problem:

If your Linpus still works then perhaps you should stay with that.

Do you have access to another thumb drive? I have 3 thumb drives, two are pretty new(same model), one is about a year old. 1 of the new ones, and the old one, will boot a Linux OS just fine. For some reason one of the new ones, will not, but it works fine for storage, etc.

How are you setting up the USB Device? I'd recommend Unetbootin. It runs easily under Windows, setup the thumb drive, then boot it.
