I found there were two binary mode problems.

(1) The first is a netscape browser's ftp.
    Netscape did treat xxxx.bz2 file as ascii-text
    in my environment.

    So, I changed preference of netscape.
    I'm not sure menu title of english version
    because I use Japanese version of netscape.
    If not correct, sorry.
  (i) Edit -> preference -> navigator -> application
  (ii) Add relation  "bz2" and "tar" and "gz"
      to appopriate application and MIME type.
      I don't know correct MIME type,
      so I use "application/x-zip-compressed".

  * I don't have complete confidence in this method,
    but done well on my occasion.

(2) The second may be a using mount command with "-b",
     that was pointed out by Mr.Bart Veer who is eCos net maintainer.

    So, I don't use "mount -b" to any mount point.

Then, I have been able to use eCos configuration tool.

Thank you.
