Excuse me for de obivious question, but I am a newbie...

I am trying to install a linux kernel on MPC8240 cpu in a limited flash
(Motorola sandpoint evaluation platform 512kb flash 32MB ram and dink32

I have got a PPC zImage compiled.

My question is what do I put at First Instruction?
Do I need Lilo?
Where is the first instruction of the kernel in a zImage?

I want only serial console first.

Because there is no CPM  in it, I wanted to postpone the networking
It means no root over nfs...
