I've got a Cogent CSB335, based on a Sharp LH79520 (ARM7TDMI)
microncontroller, and I'd like to get linux up and running on the
beast, but I don't know where to start. The standard kernel
configuration (for 2.4.22) doesn't list the CSB335 as a supported
system and I don't immediately see how to do a finer grained
configuration. The included documentation in
linux-2.4.22/Documentation/arm was informative, but I'm still pretty
much adrift.

I need some pointers for configuring the kernel for an unsupported
system, a few web-pages or book recommendations would be enough. If
anyone knows of a place to get a pre-configured kernel for this
system, that would be even better.

Hi Jeffrey,

This won't help you directly, but it might help indirectly.

My ignorant guess is that you have a lot of work to do.

Linux has been ported to the Acorn / Castle / RISCOS range of computers
and they use ARM processors.  You might find something useful if
you google through the comp.sys.acorn.* groups.

BTW, are you sure that you don't want to set followups to one group?
I am reading c.o.l.h.
