	No apologies necessary, thanks for the reply.
I had since come across those directions, but before that I had decided
to repartition the memory card and increased the space to accommodate
the image.

It is neat seeing Openoffice run on the handheld, just as long as I am
The browsers I found to be much too slow.

I tried and received errors about finding packages when I tried to
install Ekiga.
Will your package install and run Ekiga?

It is amazing that there is no native Ekiga client for Maemo.
Seems like a real missed opportunity.
