Thanks for this clarification. We were just having a
beta test on it. I also noticed that there were some
disorder characters in NFS init process. Not smooth as
2.4.x did. But it was a big advance to the real
problem, especially BDI2000 firware cannot function
well for 2.6.x debug ATM. If possible, I wanna to try
JFFS2 on it to see how faster JFFS2 of 2.6 in boot
time, which David Woodhouse suggested. All

Thanks again,


Best regards,
