Hi all,
I am new to Linux and U-boot, so I installed vmware on my host
system(win2k). I want to read and edit the u-boot source code in win2K
system .
Here are my steps:
1.Some simple introduce to my system(win2k+vmware+FC6):
    --Host system: win2k
    --vmware version:wmware 6, VMware-workstation-e.x.p-36983
    --Guest system: Linux, FC6
    --u-boot version: u-boot-1.1.2.tar.bz2
    --cross tool-chain: cross-2.95.3.tar.bz2
2.I installed the vmware-tools, so I can see the windows directories in
/mnt/hgfs in Linux.

3.uncompress u-boot-1.1.2
I put u-boot-1.1.2.tar.bz2 to the windows directories 'F:\WinShare' and
share this directory by vmware-tools. so I can see this directory in Linux
system from /mnt/hgfs/WinShare
  then I run the vmware and Linux, uncompress the u-boot-1.1.2.tar.bz2 as
  # cd /mnt/hgfs/WinShare
  # tar xjvf u-boot-1.1.2.tar.bz2

4.uncompress corss tool-chain cross-2.95.3.tar.bz2 to /usr/local/arm and
change the environment variable PATH.

5.try to make u-boot.
 # cd /mnt/hgfs/WinShare/u-boot-1.1.2
 # make distclean
 # make B2_config
 # make
 then, it shows"System not configured, see README"
 But,if I uncompress the u-boot-1.1.2 to Linux directory(for example, /tmp),
make is successful. This proves
http://www.nabble.com/file/6883/u-boot_make_problem.bmp  the cross
tool-chain is ok.
Here are the problems:
I have read the README of u-boot, but get no clue.
1. B2_config has been configured in u-boot-1.1.2/Makefile by default. Why
can not do 'make' in /mnt/hgfs/u-boot_share/u-boot-1.1.2 ? 
2. Does u-boot-1.1.2 must under Linux' directory? If it does, then it is too
convenient to read the source code to me. I usually read source code in
Win2k by SourceInSight。How to read the source code convenient in Linux?
Thanks a lot.Waiting for your helpness.
