I am able to boot the board and got Redboot prompt. Now I want to implement the Flash File System. I built a romfs image using mkfs.exe(in fs dir).In mkfs docs they have mentioned about setting a ROM BASE ADD in config tool.So I included ROMFS in Redboot and other pkgs for removing the conflicts. I need a ROM FS becoz my board is having 32MB. I want to use a file system for this area. Is it make a problem while adding the ROMFS pkg along with Redboot?Or can you suggest me the right method for this?

Thanking You,

Manoj K Abraham,
Dept. of Comp.Sc,
