[U-Boot-Users] Using MotLoad as flash bootloader???

The MVME5500 directly supports booting a Linux kernel from the net and 
from disk. A ROM/RAM/flash boot option seems to be missing.

Does anybody know, how to use the Motload to boot a kernel from flash 
(maybe with the ELF-loader, or by putting a kernel in a correct place).

I already tried loading the kernel (PPLUS image) into memory and 
executing it directly (with offsets 0 and 100 from its load address) and 
putting the BUGBOOT image into the start of both flash banks (reserved 
as kernel space anyway by the supplied MTD partition mapping).

It would be really nice to know if somebody has solved this problem, or 
if somebody could give some useful hints!

Thanks in advance,
Oliver Korpilla
