Booting CLLF ppc862 board from flash

The Embedded Planet boards ship with a documentation CD that contains an
executable called the Planet Core FLASH burner.  This program will allow you
to burn the Linux kernel to FLASH.  Most Linux kernels have a small boot
section that is smart enough to copy the kernel to the location it was
compiled for and boot it.

Subject: Booting CLLF ppc862 board from flash

Sorry for my probably stupid question.
I'm new in embedded field.

I have CLLF ppc862 board from EmbeddedPlanet.
I have it running booting from tftp with root fs NFS mounted
on one of the desktop Linux PC.

Now I want to get it running in standalone mode from Flash.
My board has PCMCIA connector with Flash Card adapter. I have
flash card of 64K. Also there are on-board flash 64K and 32K RAM.
Are there any step-by-step howto about this issue.
Thank you in advance.
Best Regards.
