Hacks are system patchs you load into the palm to get arround
stuff and get the os to do more things like display a logo on
startup, flip the screen, get arround bugs

In over to load Hacks you need a Hack manager. The original one
was called HackMaster, it was not free and it quite out of date.
Best one (and free) to now use is

- http://linkesoft.com/english/xmaster/

  if this works with 320x320 clie's

- http://home.cfl.rr.com/mjmdlm/palm/index.htm#McPhling
- Allows you to run DAs and also allows you to switch between the
  last 2 apps and also can bring up a little start menu like thing.



a DA, desk accessory, is a program that can run ontop of another
running program, kinda of a hack to multitask on a palm, usually
used for stuff like calcualtors, calendars, screen flipper,...etc

To run a DA you need a DA "hack", one I suggest is:
