First off, thanks for such a quick reply. I really appreciate your help!

I've tried this and still seem to be running into problems. Here's my  
full output:

+FLASH: 0x50000000 - 0x51000000, 64 blocks of 0x00040000 bytes each.
FLASH configuration checksum error or invalid key

Nothing else happens. I'm a bit confused as to the "Run script at boot"  
option. I assume this is a custom script (that I want to run), not the  
script to reset the flash. Is this correct? I restarted the iPAQ after  
this point and still have that error message.

This is quite possible. Unfortunately I don't have this now. (I was a  
bad installer and didn't take notes. It won't happen again!)

I tried to run that command again and I get the following now:

RedBoot> lo -r -b 0x100000 redboot_ROM.bin
Can't load 'redboot_ROM.bin': invalid parameter

I have redboot_ROM.bin in both the "My Documents" and the "My Device"  
folder (just to be sure). I could have sworn that I ran this very  
command yesterday and got the output that I sent you yesterday ...

I did notice that the device came unplugged while I was messing around  
with it this past weekend. I do not believe it was unplugged while I  
executed these commands though.
