[U-Boot-Users] PPC 8260 Linux boot

I am trying to boot Linux 2.4.25 (code from denx linux-2-4-devel)
The board is similar to MPC8260ADS
What happens is that the kernel is starting but after a short while gets 
an exception and the board is reset again.
We tried looking at the kernel sources to see where we get, we did this 
by lighting hardware LEDS we have on the board.
We tried to find where in the kernel we get the exception, we could not 
find exactly where it happens, but we did find that it happens somewhere 
in the function prom_init called from early_init inside 

Does anyone have any idea what we should look next?
