Hum.  I'll have to check that out.  Do you happen to have any links 
handy?  (I'll do a web search for it anyway.)

I was wondering what images looked like on the USB flash drive.  I found 
a couple of pages that talk about the SFR1M44-U100 using it's own 
storage format (that probably doesn't even qualify as a file system). 
I've also found tools and directions on how to work with it under Linux 
using loopback devices.

I'll check out the HxC firmware as it would be really nice if it could 
work with standard images on a file system that I can mount under Linux.

Thank you for the information Chuck.
