You are correct - the Cogent platform is a modular system - different
motherboard and cpu module combinations, and the motherboards have
varying I/O capabilities (serial, flash, ethernet, pci, video, ...)
as do the cpu modules - I like the platform a lot, but the ppcboot port
is probably unnecessarily complicated for most other platforms.

Use the "hymod" port as a starting point - but it's probably best to
create your own port.

BTW, this question probably should have been asked on the ppcboot-users
mailing list on lists.sourceforge.net - this list is for Linux/PPC
embedded systems questions. Cheers!
