So installing Gentoo so far:

Got the 2004.2 minimal live CD (x86). So far got as far as syncing emerge with no probs.

Other things to get going:
USB mass storage for the camera if the 5-in-1 card is stuffed
synCE for the ipaq - sync to evolution maybe?

Update: got Gnome running + USB mouse (after messing about with the kernel settings) + Nvidia drivers... nice :-). Ndiswrapper is all broken tho :-(
