Didn't we discuss this once before?  There were some suggestions posted.

I am using a high speed serial S-record downloader.  I guess I will
be posting the boot rom and the loader for the EST8260 when I get
a chance later this week.  I then load and flash a kernel the same
way.  I have some flash utilities that run from Linux and just reflash
kernels into different areas for testing.  I have just finished a
program to hack the zImage header so the VxWorks boot rom will load
it.  I only spent about half an hour, so it needs a little cleaning up,
but it seems to work.  I am hoping someone will provide a TFTP loader
for the code I post.......
