Right. We also have the build scripts used to generate it on our FTP server.

And we also have TQM8xxL (half credit card sized!) based  development
systems, with PPCBoot and Linux preinstalled. And we support the Open
Source / nearly free hardware BDM-Debugger project BDM4GDB.

Correct. Or check the BDM4GDB project at SourceForge. If  you  cannot
build  the  parallel port adapter yourself, we offer small numbers at
production cost (<$50).

Hope thishelps,
