Hi Wolfgang,

          Thanks for the response; I hope I did this right.

          There is NO error messages at all; the board just hung; I run
different setup; the standard run "run flash_self_fdt" works flawlessly; the
board just hung for "run flash_nfs_fdt".

          Yes; I run ELDK_MAKEDEV and ELDK_FIXOWNER; I even run this using
Ubuntu Linux 6.04, 6.10, 7.04, 7.10 and 8.04; same results.

          Once the board booted locally, I can mount nfs and run target
program with no problem; so it seems that the nfs server is set correctly at
the Linux station.

          Is there anyway to create "install log file" during ELDK
installation ?; the errror/warning message starts pretty early; one of them
that I can remember is the "fixdep.c"  file.

          Can you recommend a US based training class for ELDK for PowerPC ?

          Thanks again for the help.
