How to install the mobile version on a Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC device?

This How-To will show how to install the Windows Mobile application on a Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC edition (WM5 PPC) device. This differs from the Windows Mobile 5 SmartPhone edition devices in that the Pocket PC devices have a touch-screen where the Smart-Phone devices do not...
