PDB or PRC converters on Linux?

Hi all,

I'm just about to purchase an Asus Eee Pc (with Xandros Linux OS) to use as a convenient laptop replacement when I travel.

I don't want to use the Eee Pc as an ebook reader, but I do want to be able to convert my html ebooks into .pdb/.prc to read on my Palm Zire71 as required.

Is anyone able to point me in the direction of a converter that runs on Linux?

I'd love to be able to use Mobipocket because it's an all-in-one solution, but it isn't supported.

Go to http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17718 and have a read. It's a set of Perl scripts that you can run under Linux to convert HTML to Mobipocket and they do other things as well.

You could also use plucker as a reader and the conversion programs for it:
