I'm using an old Handspring Visor Deluxe with the Palm OS still on it.
 It works great with my SUSE 10.0 boxen and with Ubuntu.  The Sharp
Zaurus with Linux can still be had somewhere - but use google on that.
 SpiderTools.com sells a (refubrished?) Zaurus along with their
training materials in text format.  LinuxDevices.com and tuxmobil.org
should prove to be invaluable resources.

I can't help with the wireless stuff.

Hopefully, some of the others will be able to help with the wireless stuff.
