[U-Boot-Users] Help with u-boot 0.4.0 and IBM ASH board

Good afternoon...

I have an IBM ASH (NPe405h) board that I am trying to get U-Boot 0.4.0
running on. 
Ultimately, I'll port this over to our custom board that is very similar to
the ASH,
but I figured it would be better to start on a known platform.

I downloaded the new 0.4.0 U-Boot and ran these two commands (after
the Makefile to run 'ppc_405-' instead of 'ppc_8xx'):
	make ASH405_config
	make all

It flew through compile and link to produce the nice u-boot.srec.  I put
that in 
my tftpboot directory, telnet'd over to the abatron 2000, erased ASH flash
programmed this new image in there.  

The result is an immediate SystemError LED illumination.

I then switched from Flash to SRAM (one of the dips on the ASH board) and
Running from SRAM produces a program exception and jump to 0x700 almost
right off
the bat.  

I am running out of ideas on how to get U-boot and my ash board to
cooperate.  Has 
anyone else that has tried this had the same problems?
