We have a patch for RTLinux-3.0 on our  FTP  server,  as  well  as  a
kernel  that is known to work with this patch (there are other, newer
kernel versions as well, but these might need a little work  adapting
the  patch).  Included  with  the  patch  comes  a `README.DENX' with
detailed description of the patch and installation procedure.

Please note that there is also  a  patch  for  RTAI-24.1.4.  We  will
maintain  RTAI  support  in  the  future,  but  may (or may not) drop
support for RTLinux (no technical reasons, just because of the patent

Hope this helps,
