Hi Stephen

Thank you for sharing your experiences with installing RedBoot on a USB

You are very welcome to submit a documentation patch. Ideally, the PC
target-specific documentation should be relocated to the i386 PC
platform HAL package (similar to the M5272C3 and SH4-202 target
documentation). However, a patch to the eCos User Guide would certainly
be helpful.
