Thanks a lot for the reply.
I have hoped it was more platform-dependent because I have a MVME5100 (that
is, I think, a MCPN765 with a PCI-VME bridge) and with KERNELBASE at
0xa0000000 doesn't work (in head.S the kernel doesn't recognize that it is
running at 0 and it try to relocate itself).
Do you think that this is a warning of a more complicated problem ?
