    Which Kernel version, and do you have the CF patches?

    I had the same problem, this is what I did after I received Support from Logic:

    I'm using the ColdFire 5475EVB, and my CF card has FAT file system on

    1. First your CPLD needs to be programmed.

    I've used MC547X__64.upd file to program it.

    2. If you want to mount it when you are in LiLo, do a mount fatfs /cf

    losh> mount fatfs /cf
    losh> cd /cf
    losh> ls
    D : webs 0
    D : TEMP 0

    3. In order to mount it from Linux (I'm running 2.4.26 kernel)

    make sure your CF is detected during boot

    fire_engine_cpld_init:98 hw revision a2
    FireEngine CPLD HW revision 2
    FireEngine CPLD SW revision 5
    fire_engine_cpld_init:110 cpld_programmed 1
    cfide_init:554 present 1
    hda: 61MB, CHS=978/4/32
    Partition check:
    hda: p1
    cfide_init:608 paritition 0 start 0 nr_sects 125184
    cfide_init:608 paritition 1 start 32 nr_sects 123104

    Then, do a mount

    #mkdir /cf
    #mount -t vfat /dev/hd/1 /cf
    hda: p1

    Hope this helps,
