Hi guys,

here's a hint for all users of Palm OS and Ubuntu Linux - Giantdisc!

http://giantdisc.org/

I just set it up...now I can control all my music wireless on my Palm...loving it!!

I published a How-To, but it's in German.
Anyway, *all* the commands are there, so it should be easy to set up even if you do not understand German.

There ya go:

*click* (http://www.dachboden-wg.de/portal/index.php?option=com_smf&Itemid=104&topic=19684.0)

It's chapter 11!

All you need is Ubuntu/Linux, WLAN and a Palm with built-in WiFi.
GiantDisc runs awesomely stable, and the searches (mysql queries) are freaking fast AMAZING! <3

Isn't it great to see how many things linux makes possible? Damn, it's fantastic!! Some screenshots of it in action...

I still use this daily, and it's just fantastic! :D

I wanted to recommended a patch for external media:

It's a lot more convenient than the standard way GD handles files...give it a try! ;)
