Yes, of course!!!

Configuration files for some targets are included  with  the  BDI2000
firmware  -  see  the floppy disk, or the .zip file you received with
the device.

But a configuration file for _some_ PXA250 board is only an  EXAMPLE,
you  cannot use it unchanged on different hardware. You must create a
NEW  configuration  file  which  matches  exactly  the  hardware   as
implemented on your board.

This is not a trivial task, but the knowledge you need to do this  is
necessary to successfully port and debug U-Boot anyway.

If programming was easy, they wouldn't need something as  complicated
as a human being to do it, now would they?
