Dear Wolfgang,
I have two additional questions:
1. which external USB Host Controller do you recommend us to use, for which a reliable driver exists in the 2.4 kernel?
2. if you would develop for us (Thales Communication Netherlands) a driver for the MPC8270 USB Host Controller, for how much time and cost would you be able to do this?Kind regards,
Huub Eikens
