I'm familiar with loading u-boot and uClinux over ethernet on the BF537 stamp kit. However how is this done on the BF561 kit? Does it use the EZ-LAN extender kit? This link has everything to get me started, but I was wondering if it is supported in the latest uClinux and uBoot builds.

I use the BF561-EZKIT with the EZ-LAN extender.  It has a SMSC91111 chip on it which is well supported in U-Boot and uClinux as well.


Just note that when you do get the EZ-LAN extender there's a bank of two switches which you'll have to adjust as per the page on this site somewhere.  Mine came with the switches already set correctly but that was 2 years ago, so just check yours.
