> 3 x yes. But I can only speak of the DENX kernel trees.

I plan to use the latest ELDK from DENX
Is there any known problems in ELDK Distro?
I could see that the ELDK distro is well packed with all toolchains,
kernel and applications.
I could no find out the "target filesystem" ?
Should the target filesystem be created manually from the directory
into which I install all the application RPMs.? Is there any script
files already available doing the same.

How is the kernel and rotofs attachment done ?
Do I need o do it with my bootloader passing command line arguments to
the kernel ? (I plan to use u-boot).

As far as performance is considered, I do not need very high.
Out of curisity, what exactly is the problem ?
