FOSS Oncology Information System?

Palm Med References on Linux device?!

HI, I have been fascinated with sharp SCL 860 PDA which is a linux based machine. The problem is that most popular references are created for Palm devices. Is any way to use available references for Palm on a sharp device? I know an emulator exists but it is too slow. So the options are either to run those programs on a website and then access the website wirelessly or to have a reader on the PDA that can read text designed for palm device. Any ideas or suggestions?! Thanks Al
