Linux on HP iPAQ rx3700 Answered

I have just got this little pocket computer, and I am not satisfied with the old windows mobile system on it. That's why I want to install Linux on it, but I haven't been able to find an instruction that would be possible for a software newbie like me. 

It's a HP iPAQ rx3700 and I don't care about which Linux edition that is installed on it. All I know is that I have to put some files on the SD card I have - put it in the device - and boot Linux on the device.

I hope that it isn't an impossible task :-)

Look up the site he has linked in the video and use Google translate to get the instructions for loading that version of Linux onto your iPAQ.
