Getting motorola products, especially oddities like the Dragonballs,
is very difficult in australia for some reason.
I only needed a dozen or so, so buying samples was fine with me, but 8
weeks later they have only delivered six out of the twelve i
I considered ucLinux for this project, but it turns out that the
rom/ram requirements are a bit too high to be practical for me.

Didn't mean to confuse the issue , (my little brain may have been

If i believe. Although i don't know if RTEMS uses those features. I
don't think there is any rocket science involved, but DO remember there
was something that needed to be considered.
I have to look it up anyway, will let you know if I find anything.
Nice to see other people in Australia doing work on real processors and
Will have to follow the ucLinux project, didn't know they were also
using the Dragonball (it is such a NICE proccessor).
One question...Where do you obtain you processors from ??, as neither
AVNET nor VELTEK said they had any available except samples.
The Crystal Ethernet is a piece of cake to drive, so I don't think
drivers will be much of a problem
