 Hi Justin,

  you must be kidding. A stock jornada820 has 16 MB RAM,
  2 MB are reserved for wince, so running a standard 
  bloated X setup with only twm and xterm is quite painful in
  itself. X _can_ be tuned, but it will take some time and effort.

 Yes. Netgear MA701 CF card (prism2) 
 with PCMCIA adapter works great here.
