Firmware can created by anyone and requires only documentation and a compiler/linker for the target processor. In many cases the CPU used is already supported by some free toolchain. Look for example at : linux-2.6.10/drivers/scsi/aic7xxx/aic79xx.seq linux-2.6.10/drivers/scsi/aic7xxx/aic7xxx.seq linux-2.6.10/drivers/scsi/sym53c8xx_2/sym_fw[1-2].h linux-2.6.10/drivers/usb/serial/keyspan_pda.S Cheers, Peter (p2).
