Probably not with Redhat 9, but you can get distros for various handhelds. and LinuxDevices might be good starting points for what's available.

I had the Casio E-125 a while back. It was a decent pda, although it was nothing next to my Zaurus. I would see if there is a way to put Linux on it if I were you. Then you could do more and have a geekier PDA. :-)

I think you may be out of luck on getting a Pocket PC to sync with RH 9, but then again my Zaurus doesn't even do that well (see angry rant in general :-) ) . Palm based PDA's (read: toys) are the only pdas I know of that do email syncing with Linux machines.
