i also have an ipaq 1945, and have experimented with installing linux on it. your best (and i think only) resources are these two (related) websites

currently, from the software available above, linux is bootable on the ipaq, however the only way to currently communicate with the ipaq once linux has booted is through the infrared port !

Have you tried the bluetooth or is it not supported. I have a bluetooth dongle for my pc although I haven't tried setting it up under linux yet.
