Dear David,

Thanks for your inputs.
Actually i have 8 MB flash and 32 MB RAM in my target board.
I need to create a read-only file system either in flash or RAM
which should be able to accomodate our application which is about
8 MB (stripped one).

Thanks again for your response.

with best regards,
