First join the new linuxppc-embedded mailing list.  This is a ppc-embedded
problem and there is no need to hassle the ppc-users or ppc-developers.

I had these problems too.  It is definately a configuration problem.  I am
using the latest embedded source mpc8xx-2.3.10.tgz but had the same
problems with embedded-2.2.5.  Send your .config file.

Things you should NOT have included are :
- serial support and serial-console support.  I know this sounds wrong but
that's the way it is.
- virtual terminals
- make sure that no network cards are selected.

PS. I think there is a sample configuration file in embedded-notes.txt or
mbx-notes.txt on the ftp site.
