Sorry to bother you, Scott:

My working procedure is:
* in a PC terminal window
sudo ip address add 192.168.0.200/24 dev usb0
sudo ip link set dev usb0 up
sudo route add -host 192.168.0.202 dev usb0
* then click on a Nautilus bookmark which does the following.
Is that the kind of thing that you meant? As I am not familiar with the
terminology of mounting the Openmoko in USB mass storage mode. Whereas
on reflection, you might have meant to use something like using a mount
command in a command-line terminal window. Which procedure I'm not
accustomed to (or got confused about the last time I tried!).
But as the phone has the cp command, I thought of using that to transfer
a file from there to the PC. Just to explore more how to do stuff.
However I ran into the problem that I didn't know how to tell cp the
remote (IP or host name) address. So that I couldn't figure out how from
a terminal window doing SSH into the phone, to specify to copy a file to
my home directory on the PC.

I am not familiar with using zcat, though I found it in the phone's bin
directory. I also noted as you suggested that there were many programs
listed in the phone's user binaries directory. But I will need to
examine that user binaries directory listing with the help of a PC
terminal window, so as to work out what each program did!
Thanks again for your trouble.
