I did that prior to mailing the list. It kept on looping through
doing a select on the comm port, then timing out, then doing the
select again. That was with the Sunyard built in flashing interface.
I tried another key combo on boot, to get a different flashing
interface, and this time it sends the data to the POS, but the POS
didn't accept it. Hence, I wanted to build the new romfs.img, but as
noted in the response to Lars, the timestamps didn't change. I didn't
want to make a reconfigure of the source tree, in case I made a
mistake which prevents the machine from booting.
I blame Sunyard for this, not ucDIMM which appears to be a fine product.

No source :-) I'd prefer to use tools from the shell such as dd etc
rather than that program. I just don't know how to set it up on the
POS to receive the new image, so I can bypass their funky BIOS.

Not for me :-(
I appreciate the time you took out to help me!
