The old MON8xx monitor is obsolete and has been replaced by our  much
more powerful Open Source firmware "PPCBoot". Current kernel versions
don't support the old monitor any more.

Get and install PPCBoot instead - but be careful, especially when you
don't have a BDM debugger to re-program the flash.

Let me know when you need instructions.

Sure. And a lot of work was done for 2.4.x.

It's just that we don't support the old MON8xx any more.
