Thank for your prompt response.
I have downloaded the 0.5.3 image for the 128MB CF: staboot-07-Oct-2004.sandisk128.img
Compiling and making a new CF is still cumbersome for me, I would appreciate if you can make a new 128MB CF card image with half reserve space as you indicated.

I am surprised that on the 128MB CF, you have only a 29MB root filesystem.
Do you know which file you downloaded?

Here is df -h on one of a 128MB CF I made for development today:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/wd0a 59M 23M 34M 40% /
mfs:10 47K 41K 4.0K 91% /dev
/etc 59M 23M 34M 40% /permanent/etc
mfs:1363 1.3M 929K 352K 72% /etc
/home 59M 23M 34M 40% /permanent/home
mfs:1373 68K 51K 14K 79% /home
/tmp 59M 23M 34M 40% /permanent/tmp
mfs:1390 324K 512B 307K 0% /tmp
/var 59M 23M 34M 40% /permanent/var
mfs:1394 5.3M 4.6M 440K 91% /var

We reserve half of the CF card for an upgrade image.

I recommend that people make their changes to the CUWiN sources, and then
build a new CF card. That may be cumbersome for you. Shall I make you
a new 128MB CF card image?
