Sunrise XP for Newbies: A Tutorial

Sunrise XP is a great Windows utility for getting websites, ebooks, and anything else in HTML format onto your PDA, for reading in Plucker and Vade Mecum. Laurens Fridael, the creator, has graciously sacrificed a lot of time and effort into improving and refining this application, so I thought I’d do my part to show my appreciation to him and the MobileRead community by putting together a “Sunrise XP for Newbies” tutorial, since I’ve spoken with new users recently who don’t know where to start. We had a few forum threads that provided some information each time Laurens created a new alpha or beta version, but there was no single good place to get instructions. A good portion of this text was modified from Laurens’ posts on the MobileRead forums and the program’s help documentation, so let’s call him a co-author.

Requirements for Sunrise:
  • Windows XP / 2000 / 2003
  • Pentium II or better
  • 128Mb RAM for common websites. 256Mb for larger documents.
  • HotSync Manager 4 or 6. (Should also work without HotSync installed, but does not work with older HotSync versions.)

Please forgive me for the length of this tutorial, (in my initial goal to create it, I never thought it would get this big). I promise you, it will be worth it!
