I do it in this way:
1. Flashing PPCBoot as bootloader using the BDI
2. Boot the PPCBoot which then loads the kernel via TFTP.

In most cases using Linux, you don't need to write an image into RAM using
the BDI. Also 0xc000000 is a virtual adress. You have to pass the BDI a
physical memory address. The Bus error means that no memory or device is
connected at 0xc000000.
