file system

Hi all,
    I have an RTEMS application which resides in flash memory, and 
expects to read a configuration file at startup. It currently does this 
via tftp from a networked server, which works fine. I'd really like to 
make this thing stand-alone, so ideally it would read this information 
from some kind of local filesystem. There is enough capacity in the 
on-board flash memory if I could set up a filesystem in there; even more 
so if it could be compressed. It need only be read-only. Has anyone else 
done something similar? I've seen all the postings re compact flash, but 
I don't think that is at all the same.
