The software CD that comes with the SL-C700 is entirely in Japanese. However if you want it in English you can download the SL-5500 v3 Zaurus OS and Synchronization Upgrade software from here. and install it to get a working setup in English. (Note: 66 MB file!). This assumes you are connecting to a W2K computer...
I had previously installed tkcCalendar from The Kompany. When running Outlook sync the dialog boxes showed records being read and written, however when I fired up the calendar app there were no records visible. So I uninstalled tkcCalendar, only to find that the original app would no longer run. Luckily the fix for this was out on the ZUG FAQ here. Of the two methods shown I used the first method for my stock SL-C700, i.e.
On the Sharp SL5500 2.x ROMs and SL5000D 1.x ROMs run the following commands in the terminal: 1) cd /home/QtPalmtop/bin 2) ln -sf /usr/QtPalmtop.rom/bin/datebook datebook 3) ln -sf /usr/QtPalmtop.rom/bin/addressbook addressbook 4) ln -sf /usr/QtPalmtop.rom/bin/todolist todolist 5) cd / 6) tar xvf /root/.home_default.tar home/QtPalmtop/apps/Applications/datebook.desktop 7) tar xvf /root/.home_default.tar home/QtPalmtop/apps/Applications/addressbook.desktop 8) tar xvf /root/.home_default.tar home/QtPalmtop/apps/Applications/todo.desktop Then restart Qtopia.
And, lo and behold, I had my calendar synced. See a picture of the calendar app below, and more Calendar pictures here.
