It is a boot loader with a monitor to help hardware debugging and
testing. It also contains an RTEMS BSP. Once MRB boots RTEMS will boot.
It uses the bare support in RTEMS so you do not build the BSP in RTEMS
like other BSPs.

It is part of MRB. Just download MRB.

All you need is an ethernet driver for MRB to download your application
and another driver for RTEMS. The ethernet driver is the one for the
5272 MAC device. The driver cannot be based on GPL code if you are
considering sending it to me. MRB is not under GPL.

The 5272 is a 5207e with a few extras so should not take long to get
going. The 5206e is supported.

I suppose so. Feel free to mail me off line from this list if you have
specific questions.
