About loading the program code into the Flash

Honored Contributor I

I'm using the Nios II Embedded evaluation kit (NEEK system), I want to load the program code beside some other data in the flash memory and then make the flash loads the code into the SSRAM. I've some questions: 

1- When I make the SOPC system, connect the Flash and the SSRAM to both insstruction and data buses or the SSRAM only? 

2- The bootloader required, will the Nios II EDS generate it automatically or I've to instruct it to do it? 

3- When I download the code into the processor, I choose only "Run as Hardware" or first use the flash programmer? How to ensure that the other data I'll use the flash for won't interfer with the program code? 


Thanks in advance.
