http://www.elinux.org/Flameman/ipaq/status should show a bit of progress
the iPAQ is wonderfully able to emerge himself, the kdrive needs more
work to be emerged, nano-X is pretty working, the touchscreen is
pretty ugly working, the sleeve 2xpcmcia is ugly not working at all
a lot of work is required in order to complete the kernel support
anyway, that's the status of art @ 4-3-2009
