Re: Complicated question with regard to using two palms

In principle, I understand that (please correct me if there are misconcep-
tions)  you  want to have PIM data synchronised among the desktop and  the
two PDA's. You also want to be able to take advantage of large storage ca-
pacity  on  the LifeDrive without 'choking' the Tungsten T. This is  chal-

Possible  solution: when installing files or software, the files 'pop' off
the  installation  stack. This means that if you install  something,  make
sure  it is the LifeDrive that's subsequently synchronised. As for keeping
PIM  data  in sync., make sure you synchronise often enough to  ensure  no
conflicts among the two PDA's arise. This can turn out to be difficult de-
pending on what data you synchronise, the amount of data, and the frequen-
cy of synchronisations.

Hope it helps,
