Ah yes, that's right - Scott reminded me. The vmlinuz-walnut file is in the
image format for the IBM Treeboot mechanism.
When I moved to PPCBoot for the boot ROM (http://ppcboot.sourceforge.net) I
had make a PPCboot image from the plain kernel image, which is in
You might tree using this file with the BDI2000.

It's been a while since I played with it, but as I recall the makefile
