Just like I explained below. If you follow the document up to where you have created
the fimage (using "make images") then your application should be in the read-only
cramfs filesystem (aka romfs) in the fimage. The just FTP it to the board using the
target name "flash" and the FTP server will upgrade the kernel and cramfs part of the
flash for you. (See also
<http://developer.axis.com/doc/software/tools/network_boot.html> which explains
the fimage layout).
