    Default I got a New PDA

    I remember reading about a handheld version of backtrack possibility and i am very new to linux and even newer to PDA's

    How can i shift from the preinstalled windows mobile 2003 to a linux distro? if it is only by SD card then my options are quite limited as i will be utilising the following wireless card

    http://www.expansys.com/d.aspx?i=132725

    The device in question is an ACER n30 Pocket-PC.

    As it has no navigational wheel i was wondering if that would make it a nightmare for pocket distro's

    Any advice and or pointers are much appreciated.

    I know this is not a linux distro selection forum but i would like to running a handheld pentesting suite - mainly as it has no ethernet access it would have to connected via wireless - hence the card choice [ its the only one i could find that was b/g compatable]

    You won't be able to put B|T on it, however you can put Familiar Linux on it and port apps or use ported apps that is in the B|T arsenal to it.

    This link will get you started

    Hate to chime in, but is there anything that would run BT fully functional for under $500?

    not technically a PDA, but as close as you may get.
    I felt like bending the bars back, and ripping out the window frames and eating them. yes, eating them! Leaping, leaping, leaping! Colonics for everyone! All right! You dumb*sses. I'm a mental patient. I'm *supposed* to act out!
