I am trying  to compile the 2.2.15 kernel sources (Debian potato for the
ppc) for MCPN750 borad but
I am not able to understand why my zImage don't run. The output from

Network Booting from: DEC21143, Controller 0, Device 0
Device Name: /pci at 80000000/pci1011,19 at e,0:0,0
Loading: zImage

Client IP Address      =
Server IP Address      =
Gateway IP Address     =
Subnet IP Address Mask =
Boot File Name         = zImage
Argument File Name     =

Network Boot File load in progress... To abort hit <BREAK>

Bytes Received =&1021571, Bytes Loaded =&1021571
Bytes/Second   =&340523, Elapsed Time=3 Second(s)

Residual-Data Located at: $03F88000


I am using the default config that came with the kernel, but nothing

What should I do to make a bootable kernel image? What kind of
difference there can be between the
bootable  image I found on the debian distribution and the one I'm
trying to build?
Is there any patch or something other I should add to the plain sources?

Thanks in advance

Best regards,
