    well that change was the addition of a routine to initialize the on

	What else is it linked at?? Is it not what KERNELBASE is assigned
to?? AFAIK kernel links at 0xc0000000 and the bootloader at
8Mb (PPC based boards).
   Btw the problem turned out to be a _printk_ which was causing
an MCP to occur...we use a serial device for printing

thanx a lot
