I think MontaVista has an old version  of  a  2.4  kernel  with  FADS
support on their FTP server in /pub/Area51.

Some people were able to get it running, so give it a try -  I  don't
have any personal experience since we don't use FADS boards.

However, full FADS support is available in PPCBoot, our  Open  Source
firmware for embedded PowerPC systems.

Hope this helps,
