Hi Sven,

	We were told that the RESET_B and the POE_B needed to be
swapped. Somewhere motorola has an app note on it.

Looking at the MPC850UM.PDF that I downloaded today they have corrected
the error. Our printed manual has the mistake.

RESET_B is connected to OP3
POE_B is connected to OP2

I can't find the register you are reffering to (BCSR). Could you spell

Hope this helps.
