What about on the GTA01?  The biggest I have tried so far is 2 gig
because I wasn't sure if SDHC was working.

That sounds like a good idea.  Is anybody doing that successfully?

What I do is mount it at /usr.  So when upgrading the phone image I
first have to

cp -a /usr/* /media/card/

then change fstab to mount the card on /usr at the next boot.  (Of
course I formatted it ext3, not to have the FAT limitations.)  But to
have only the files that you actually modified would save some space.
