Some helpful hints:

There are 2 types of files that casiocom uses: a system segment or a data segment (128k drive)

flashcom can do 3 things for you:
-send or retrieve these different segments from the calculator
-create a new 128k drive segment
-modify an existing system segment (this contains the main menu)

personally, I suggest only doing one of these at a time and restarting the program because flashcom crashes sometimes otherwise.

The basic idea is to put all the files a given program needs into one segment, upload that segment to the calculator (be careful as it may overwrite stored casio basic stuff in the flash memory). Then you need to download the system segment from it, open the system segment in flashcom, and add menu entries for the program(s) you added. Look at how the other menu entries are set up to see how to make yours.
