So what you are hopefully saying is wait? Is the c860 included in Zaurus clamshells due for future versions of Angstrom?
I'm desperate to have a workable system that boots from SD.

I have used the online image builder to create X11 based images, and have untarred these to my SD partition formatted ext2. If I use the udev option while building, the booting of the image hangs eventually at usb ethernet. If I use mdev option I get to the root login but it cannot startx. It says "-sh: startx: not found". Is there another command to use?
