Hi Ed,
      Thanks for your response, also thanks to Leon Pollack for pointing 
me towards MicrMonitor.

The target for my app is the Arcturus uCdimm-5272, which comes with its 
own rather limited monitor. I had shied away from replacing this with 
anything else. If nothing else there would be a learning curve plus the 
odd unbootable card :). It's somehow attractive to just take the 
commercial part as-delivered, program in the app and off you go. The 
ideal scenario would then be to have my files tacked on to the bootable 
RTEMS image and arrange so the app can read them (no writing or deleting 
needed). I wonder if one could use the IMFS for this? The task would 
then reduce to pre-formatting the info in the image to look like an IMFS 
filesystem, wouldn't it? Or am I misunderstanding something?
