Is there a description somewhere on the net on how to use/modify the IAR 
IDE to generate linux executable files?

In plain english please as I am only a level zero linux novice!

This is specific to the ARM9 TS7200 board

I shall try the TS7200 forum as well, but I understand there is a lot of 
expertise in here, so might as well ask!!

It might be easier to send an e-mail to the IAR-support. Although this 
forum as a rather general most of the readers/writers here use the GNU 

From the few things I have done with Linux on embedded targets I can 
just recomment to use a Linux-system (maybe in virtual hardwware) to 
host the building system.

Yes thanks I should try along those lines.

In practice, would this adaptation amount to little more than including 
the right precompiled object files, a new startup asm, and maybe a few 
other files in the project? or am I missing something?

I know the IAR compiler can generate the right linux-compatible format 
binaries. But I can't understand why IAR haven't provided facilities for 
generating Linux from the start. Are there any licensing or patent 
issues as well?
