I want to do it directly within Linux after boot.
(I'm currently running Busybox).
I'm looking for a small Linux-util to reviece files from the serial line.

In a perfect world I would be running "rz > /dev/mtd/3" to download
a new filesystem to my flash. On my host I would send the (raw)
filesystem from minicom... or if I had a kermit "client" for my
ppc-target I would send using kermit.

Thanks anyway :-)
