Compile your project.
Copy your images to your tftpboot directory.
Boot the EA board and issue this command in your terminal connected to the board
# run tftp_boot
Provided you've set up the correct serverip in the environment your board should now download the freshly maked images and boot directly from them. (They will not be stored in the flash memory.)
Your board will boot with an IP address specified in uClinux-dist/romfs/etc/rc - defaults to 192.168.5.233. You can change it here if you want another address to be used permanently, or you can issue
$ ifconfig eth0 <your selected IP address> up
You can now on your own computer start a telnet session (use putty on WinDoze or just telnet <IP-address> in the *nix world)
