Dear Sir or Madam,

I have 2 questions to ask you.

1. Do you have any experiences in compiling ppcboot
packages(i.e. ppcboot-0.4.4-pre1 or ppcboot-0.6.2)? If
you have, please tell me what compiling environment
(such as CDK and cygwin) you used to do the right
thing. Of course, other corresponding advice is
welcome too. If you don¡¯t, please tell me your
opinion of compiling ppcboot packages.

2. Now my board have already had a ppcboot.srec on its
flash, and I can download a kernel with Srec format
into my board. In a word, everything is OK, since
mounting NFS is no problem, debugging simple
applications on the board is also no problem. But, I
think, when we make this board become a product, we
should not let the board work through mounting a NFS
located in a Host machine. Because the board should
run independent of a Host machine. So my question is
how to make a file system on my board? I appreciate
a-sentence-advice and detailed descriptions about this

    Thanks in advance!
                                Xuelong Wang
