    Well, if you would sponsor me with one of those Psion 5MXs, I could do a very thorough investigation myself. ;-)

    It seems what they're referring to is getting the kernel source, compile it and thereby getting a linux.img file (that is, a kernel image).

    No, that first line was just a joke. Don't pay it any attention.

    after through investigation i found that the 3 files i need are kernel.s5mx, initrd and vmlinuz. i already have kernel.s5mx but i need the other 2. can i use the ones off of a boot disk or do i have to specialy compile them?
    i will also need a base of linux on it so that it will boot (bearing in mind that i only have an 128mb flash card and the only way of connecting it to my linux machine is to use a digital camera with a CF slot.)

    thanx
