Dear Bart Veer,
	Thank you for your explanation.
	Then I have some more questions.
	If I define a target in ecos.db as below,

	target ixdp425 {
	alias { "IXDP425 board" ixdp425 }
	packages { CYGPKG_HAL_ARM

	However, for initial porting, I need not compile the PCI package into the .bin image. So, how to temporarily remove this
package? Should I remove it from the target definition lines as shown above? Or I need to remove it from the redboot_xxx.ecm
file? Or both?
	BTW, where can I find information about the syntax of .ecm file? The online manual seems not provide any so far.
	Thank you.
Best Regards,
kneep <caozhiyuan@hotmail.com>
