I ported U-Boot to this board and use it with Linux. No problems so
far. I don't initialise PCI bridge in U-Boot because I don't need PCI to
boot Linux. Linux kernel initialises PCI according to its needs. I sent
a patch which prevents U-Boot from trying to initialise local bus SDRAM
if the board configured in PCI mode, but it's not in CVS yet. Probably
Wolfgang is too busy.

There may be a problem if you connect board's Ethernet to a hub. Switch
or direct connection to PC using cross-cable work OK. It looks like
Davicom PHY problem.

Good luck,
