3. Additional information

The installation was successfully from the beginning using Cent Os 3.9 (now downloading 5.1), I only have some problems finding some drivers, in partucular the Atheros Wifi drivers,(don`t work for the moment). I also share a second partition with windows XP using GRUB as boot manager, and works just fine.


The main purpose is the development of VHDL code for FPGA devices (Xilinx) and the implementation of uClinux over a MicroBlaze system. I installed the EDA tools ISE WebPack from xilinx and they works very very nice.
