Re: [nslu2-linux] Re: Fattened with hynix HY57V56820BT-H. Does it fit?
- Hi there fellow NSLU2ers,
it is a job of mine, too. The H/W part is easy for me, since I
am a H/W engineer having access to a well equiped lab.

far less sophisticated than a modern PC bios. You need to tell
the _boot_loader_ what the correct organization of RAM (and
EEPROM) is. So You need to modify the bootloader, which is much
more critical than modifying the kernel. If you mess up the
bootloader, You need either reflash the EEPROM via JTAG, or You
need to remove the EEPROM to burn it directly. (I'll do that,
and I'll solder a socket for the EEPROM into my slug)
