I previously pointed you to the Sandburst Metrobox and Karef ports.  You 
had mentioned (on the linuxppc-embedded)
that you're using ppc4xx.  The SB Metrobox and karef are 440GX based boards.

We use FAT for loading the kernel, then the kernel mounts an ext3 
partition on the cf for its root fs.

Take a look at include/configs/METROBOX.h and board/sandburst/*
