[U-Boot-Users] can't get any response from newly-flashed RPXlite DW board

  to keep things brief, i'm trying to get u-boot 1.1.2 running on an
RPXlite DW-like board (that is, it's not *exactly* an rpxlite dw, but
it's close enough).  i don't want to get anything working beyond
u-boot, so the kernel is not an issue.

  to make a long story short:

 - downloaded 1.1.2
 - make RPXlite_DW_config all
 - got "u-boot.bin", checked it out, looked good, about 119K

 - abatron BDI 2000, erased system flash (mapped to 0xfc000000):
   >erase 0xfc000000 chip
   >prog 0xfc000000 uboot.bin bin

 - seemed to work, verified with memory dump that chip starts with
   "...VU-Boot ...

 - connect to serial console, 115.2K, 8N1, no flow control
 - power up board and ... nothing

i've used this basic recipe to reflash this board many times with a
system that incorporates EP's planet core boot loader, so i know that
*that* recipe is basically reasonable.

  the *only* deviation from the docs is that i *am* using minicom at
the moment.  if this is really a critical flaw, i can switch to "cu",
but minicom has worked splendidly until now without fail.

 is there something *else* i can look at before ditching minicom?
