The ELDK contains the SELF package  (SELF  =  Simple  Embedded  Linux
Framework)  which  is  intended  as  a  building  stone  for your own
application images. Instructions how to add files and/or  change  the
size  of  the  filesystem and how to generate different image formats
(ramdisk, cramfs, JFFS2) can be fund in the DULG. See especially
