Yes, if it is at least 1 MB of size or so...

1. Embedded Linux in EPROM?

I am working on a communications system that needs to operate in ahostile
environment.  I will not be able to use disk drives and so magnetic media cannot
be used to boot the system.

An ideal solution would be to bring up the LINUX kernel from a 1M EPROM into
my 4M of working RAM and then fire up the TCP/IP code from LINUX.

Has anyone else tried to embed the LINUX kernel?

2. installing: probs w/ symlinks

3. boot-Eprom and Disk-on chip socket

4. Are non-Intel CPU's (AMD) o.k. with Redhat?

5. Linux box can be embedded inside a PC -- CNETAsia

6. "No config file found"

7. Smc91c96 ethernet chip in embedded linux

8. Problem : high load (>7) without big process or disk usage

9. FTP client inside linux firewall communicating with FTP server inside another linux firewall

10. linux + mp3+ embedded chip?

11. Using imbedded commands inside expr(1)

12. "Linux Inside": Spoof of Intel Inside

13. embedded pppd chat script inside a string in a c program
