Correct. MPC8308, MPC8315 and the like are not supported in 2.4

No. 2.4 kernel development stooped many years ago. Support for recent
processors will only be available in current Linux 2.6 kernel

Please consider that you are switching to completely new hardware,
all new technology. With the new CPU and new periphereals you will get
new device drivers and also a new kernel tree. This is only natural,
and unavoidable.

I think you have to face it: Linux 2.4 is dead and gone.

C++ is the best example of second-system effect since OS/360.
