There is also eBay...presently there is a listing for a complete ZR-5000 setup, including some application software. This is the model that was the "father" of the ZR-5800, so it's likely the software would work. BUT it is for a lot of things you don't need....
Just remember that Sharp continued to make "Zaurus" models for years...be advised that only something labeled as "for the ZR-5000 series" Is going to work properly with your unit.

I do have a couple of old Thinkpads that have serial ports, but both are running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. Has anyone tried getting a Zaurus to talk to Linux?
For those seeking software, I found this right before landing here.
Appears to be for models newer than the trusty 5000 series, but maybe someone will find something useful.
The OP mentioned using PC cards. I don't have any for my unit, so it's off to Google I go, but if anyone here can give me a more direct line it'd be much appreciated.
