There were a few posts about getting Geowrite to run on an Omnigo:
One person that has done it is James Bearden -- he has a website
(sorry, I don't have the URL handy) . Here's what he has said:

"OK, the only way I have figured out how to run desktop applications on
the
OmniGo is to start GEOS from the flash card. Copy what you want onto the
flash card in the proper directories. Copy A:\GEOWORKS\LOADER.EXE to
E:\GEOWORKS\LOADER.EXE. Combine your B:\GEOWORKS\GEOS.INI file and
A:\GEOWORKS\NET.INI file into B:\GEOWORKS\GEOS.INI file. Basically, both
are GEOS.INI files, but GEOS.INI calls the NET.INI file in ROM. Remove
the
line that calls net.ini and merge the info in NET.INI into GEOS.INI.
Copy
this new GEOS.INI file to E:\GEOWORKS\GEOS.INI. make a ne batch file
(mine
is called geose.bat) to change directory to E:\GEOWORKS and run
LOADER.EXE."
I haven't tried it yet, but I intend to . I already bought a 12meg
card. Hope this helps
