I´ve just completed an small piece of Hardware. Only a 486 16mb EDO an UART.
Everything put together on a small pcb-board. Then modified Openbios a
little bit, loaded it into a ROM-emulator and go!
The machine boots, complains about the missing RTC (who needs an rtc?),
tests the mem ... and then executes :
Ok for that. - but can somebody tell me what I have to do to get a
Linuxkernel loaded ? I intend to put an 16bit latch on the isabus and
connect a flashdisk there ...
I could write C code to load the kernel image from the first, say, 1k blocks
of the disk. But where do I put this image and how I´m gonna start it ?
Please someone gimme a hint on that. I´ll submit the loadcode Ive done then
back to this group ... maybe someone wants to use it ?
Ah. By the way, this mail was done by Exchange - locked inside a virtual
machine that runs under Linux. (Thats the place where it should be ;-)).
