HOWTO FAT support in Redboot

I am using ecos/Redboot bootlaoder for my embedded application.
I need to provide FAT filesystem support in Redboot, so that my system can boot from FAT formated SD card.
according to :
I added following in ecos.ecc:
cdl_configuration eCos {

package CYGPKG_FS_FAT current ;
package CYGPKG_IO_DISK current ;
package CYGPKG_LINUX_COMPAT current ;
package CYGPKG_IO_FILEIO current ;
package CYGPKG_IO current ;
package CYGPKG_LIBC_STRING current ;
package CYGPKG_MEMALLOC current ;

But that did not helped.

My presently working Reboot does not even support "fs" or "mount" command.
Under the source tree there is a folder named "packages" , that contains
"packages/fs" ,
"packages/redboot" and

also there is folder named "build" containg
all *.o and ecos.ecc.
Somehow things enabled in "packages" reflect in "build" , BUT HOW TO MODIFY the "packages".
Is there any ".config" here , so that I can simply enable things I want.

Plz help


fat, howto
