Hello,

Does anybody have any experience with downloading linux to a target
via (using Red Boot) the serial port?

I don't have my ethernet hardware working yet, but I would truly like
to see linux boot.

Questions:

1) Where in memory should I download linux?

2) Where should I download the root filesystem?  How does linux know
where it is?

Thanks,
 Mike

Hi Mike,
Quoted text here. Click to load it
pretty much anywhere.

Quoted text here. Click to load it
you can put the filesystem anywhere too, but you then need to tell the kernel
where
to find it using the initrd= boot arguement.
