hi dave:
could you send me a kernel image for 200M Hz?
I just upload my own kernel into flash, after it displayed :
Umcompressing Linux.................................... done, booting the kernel.
then it stopped.
I think my kernel doesnot work. this kernel is what I just built from the latest build root with c++ enabled and set to NOT 400 Mhz. the final size is 3448232 root_fs_arm_nofpu.
thank you.

Well, I was thinking that you'd probably want to reflash the entire
image, because alot more stuff has changed than just the kernel and
the modules (like all of the udev stuff).

Hmmm. What did you enable? Mine is much smaller:
ls -l rootfs*
