Done. http://www.shimaore.net/CUWireless/Soekris4521/ as usual.

You'll find updates for:

- CompactFlash full-disk image (for 64MB CF card);
- initrd image for PXE boot (with kernel 2.4.19 and JFFS2 support);
- Linux Kernel config file;
- tar.gz content of both the boot partition (ext2) and the root partition
  (jffs2), especially interesting for people who want to see the inner
  working of both the boot and the system itself (this includes the
  CUWireless-specific script I wrote to configure zebra, ospfd and
  dhcpd, look under /etc/init.d in the second partition).

and also:

- Documentation on how JFFS2 fits with the other components both on a
  desktop system (useful if you want to update a JFFS2 partition on a
  CompactFlash with a desktop using a USB reader/writer) and on the
  Soekris board (useful to understand why the lilo.conf look so weird).
- and my daily dose of "here's what I went through", which includes
  even more details on how I built the new CompactFlash. :)


So: who's on for the meeting tomorrow night? If it's at my place I can buy
softdrinks at IGA on my way back from work.. ;)
