[ECOS] Installing ECOS on IPAQ: Reflash Problem

Successful: Loaded the Handhelds Bootloader and then sent the redboot_ROM.bin
file using ymodem to the 0x40000 address.

NOTE: I have the WinCE files I took off the IPAQ, but don't have Windowz
presently so couldn't use the way described in the Ecos reference document for
doing the install.

Thanks

Leo
