this sounds really great.

One more question, since I want to build a small linux first, I want
to use busybox+uClibc in the initramfs (to incorporate in the kernel),
are they already available for FR? If not, is there any instruction to
compile them?

I am very new to embedded linux world, and sometimes find myself lost
very much, so some questions maybe silly for you guru guys. :)
