I made two mistake:

When I put my Zaurus in cradle:
a) Linux recognize it (from dmesg):
usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 3
usb0: register 'zaurus' at usb-0000:00:02.3-1, Sharp Zaurus SL-5x00,

b) The usb0 interface become infallible, but have no ip address:
usb0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr C6:DC:77:7B:3B:5F  
          BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1494  Metric:1

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

What should I do to have usb0 starting after Zaurus is connected?

I've already added /etc/hotplug/net.agent:

case $ACTION in

    case $INTERFACE in


    usb0) #MOJE
        if /usr/sbin/ethtool -i usb0 | grep -q Zaurus
        ifconfig $INTERFACE

It works. I have only one problem. I would like to be sure that CF card
will be always sda1 (or whatever but always the sane). From time to time i 
will add creative mp3, and this should be ... i.e. sda2

I don't need Black Boxes, I need info how this BB works.
