I want to create a uRamdisk image
 with ext2 filesystem.
I am using the ELDK kit.
/arm/images of eldk contains 2 files
ramdisk_image.gz and uRamdisk.
uRamdisk, at that location is of 
type Arm Linux Ramdisk image,
but with the load and entry point address 
set to 0x00000000.
I want a uRamdisk Image with the 
load and entry point address
set to 0xa2a00000.
So, when i create uramdisk from 
ramdisk_image.gz and set the 
load and entry point addressas i want and 
when i check the image
using mkimage -l i see that the image type is 
PowerPPC Linux Ramdisk Image.

Also as per the DULG manual when 
i tried creating the uRamdisk image
as mentioned in the section
9.6.1 Root Filesystem on a Ramdisk i 
get the image of type
Powerppc Linux Ramdisk Image.

How do i create uRamdisk of type
Arm linux Ramdisk Image?

Please let me know

Eagerly awaiting your reply.
