Question PDA Toys - linux Replacements...

Good day everyone. I have a question for the larger Linux community out there. I had the sad chore of laying to rest my old Handspring Visor Deluxe after only three years. Well, because of that I had the joy of upgrading to a Sony Clie PEG-SJ33 and really like it.

Now for the question. Syncing with jpilot was a snap! I don't have a memory stick yet, but I can see that mounting that will be a snap too. However, I have not figured out how to utilize some of the abilities without resurrecting an old windows system.

Software in question:[list=1][*]Is there any way to install photos for PG Pocket with out PictureGear? (maybe other programs you would substitute)[*]Will the audio player play regular MP3s if I just copy them over to a memory stick?[*]Is there any way to produce Kinoma movies in Linux?[*]How do you copy over audio wav or midi files without SoundConverter?[/list=1]
Well, these are the basics right now. I would really like to know if there is any way to do this without a windows system. Someday, maybe, companies will actually provide windows and Linux software.

Thanks for any help, suggestions, comments, ideas, flames, random acts of postings.

Just a quick update....

I have been googling around and have not found much of anything. There are plenty of sync software packages, but nothing that I have found to support conversions of png, jpg, etc.. file to .prc files. I have also not come up with any program that supports third party files such as splash photo or PictureGear. I haven't even gotten to the sound issue above.

Anyone have any ideas??
