just managed to do it IM SO HAPPY! :E
karim yaghmours book, 'building embedded linux systems' if you follow it
exactly will show you how,
problem i was doing was replacing the SPL with stage2/pre_load2 converted to
grub_firmware by code in grub dir located in mtd cvs, patch not patching
correctly, also i'm using redhat 9, ive got no mkfs.minix (annoying) plus a
problem with 'automake' in regards to grub there is a patch that cures the
errors '-p1' which you can find here:
is it true redhat is now over , time for some slackware!
stephen (happy as larry)
