Kernel image for ColdFire platform?


Dear All
Can you please let me know where to find minimum kernel image for my ColdFire platform to boot from ? Please be informed that at this stage I am not restricted to use an specific Linux distro and just I need to have the minimum kernel image possible size.
Thank you in advance

You have to either build the kernel using a coldfire development kit, or use an embedded system. Debian may have a working coldfire kernel in the m68k arch. You could poke around on a mirror site. But usually you would build the system on a Linux box, and after it was complete, transfer it to a flash memory card, and boot the coldfire processor via the flash card.

Thank you very much for your reply . You told me that the Debian has kernel image for ColdFire platform , but I was not able to find it. So I asked you again if you can give me the link to download that kernel image.
