    If I press and hold my home page and add a shortcut to Touchdown, it asks if I want a shortcut for the calendar or e-mail or contacts. I don't; I want the overview page. How do I set that up?

    Same as you would with any other app. Either:
    * Long hold a blank space on the 'desktop' wallpaper, and choose Shortcuts, and then Applications. Select TouchDown
    * OR open the App Drawer, find TouchDown, long hold, and then drop onto the desktop.

    That doesn't work; Touchdown prompts me and asks me which kind of shortcut (mail, contact, task) I want.

    That works. I didn't know that method. Thanks.

    It'll only ask you that if you go to Widgets. If you choose Shortcuts->Applications you should only see the main TouchDown app.

    Glad you got it working.

    You missed a step. Long press, choose shortcuts, and then applications and then touchdown.

    You were not picking widgets. You were choosing touchdown right after shortcuts. It is the bottom of the "select shortcut" screen.
