> The Hardware is specified with Xilinx EDK, I got one bit-file from it. And I have the uClinux-Image where the user-application is included. So do I have to download both bit-files or is there a way to combine both?

the most convenient may will be to store the bit-file from the EDK to
the fpga section of the flash on the Suzaku-Bord. You can use netflash,
flashw or hermit for that as documented in the suzaku software manual.
By doing so the FPGA will automatically be configured with that bitfile
upon system start up. Of course your bit-file has to include the first
stage bootloader. The sources for this bootloader are on the CD-Rom you
should received with the Suzaku-Board. Otherwise have a look at
<http://suzaku-en.atmark-techno.com/> for all sources and detailed
documentation. Same can be done with the kernel image. It can be written
do the image section of the flash. Again, habe a look into the
documentation for details about this procedure.

When developing user software or drivers (as a module) you can spare a
lot of time by mounting a nfs file system from your host computer. Doing
so there will be no need at all to download bit file and kernel image
over and over again. That will be most time saving procedure while
developing user applications. 
<http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/NFS-HOWTO/index.html> will explain how to use
