[U-Boot-Users] question about standalone application

I'm new to U-Boot. I'd like to run an application after my custom board is booted up. In the U-Boot readme file, I learned there is a command called "loads" which will download the *.srec from the host to the board through serial line. So I want to download the hello world demo and see how it works. I don't know how I should setup my board and my host.
My host run on Windows 2000 and connects to the board using HyperTerminal. With that, I'm able to see the bootup message. When I type "loads", it shows the following:
## Ready for S-Record download ...
but the next line "~>examples/hello_world.srec" never comes out. Must I use Linux as the host?
I downloaded C-Kermit for Linux and Windows XP, too. But I couldn't set it up correctly. In Linux, I entered the following commands and expected to see the bootup message as in HyperTerminal, but I didn't.
set line <my device>
set speed 115200
set serial 8N1
set carrier-watch off
And I couldn't make a connection using Kermit 95 for Windows XP either.
What have I done wrong?
Please help! Your advice is appreciated.
