    Hi all:

    I am working on a special project and I need a little help.

    To save me some time, could someone tell me what the format of
    the firmware file is? I'm thinking it is as follows:

    1) sometype of loader
    2) the kernel file
    3) the root file systems

    Does this sound right?? If so, how can I tell where each section
    starts and stops?? Is there a length indicator somewhere in
    each section?

    I know I could look at the code for the wrt45g but I want to make
    the process univeral ( other firmware, wap54g, etc. ).

    Any help would be nice.

    Thanks for your time.

    William Estrada
