I have successfully booted up Monta Vista 6/29 linux kernel on this
board. I  now want to get the video card to work. Any ideas/pointers
would be helpful. Also, I think the address space is not configured
correctly, can somebody confirm this?

/proc/pci reports :
PCI devices found:
  Bus  0, device   0, function  0:
    Host bridge: PCI device 1014:0156 (IBM) (rev 1).
