Thanks for sharing your experiences with the MPC5200Lite card.
Would it be possible for you to explain the steps you took to replace
dbug with u-boot. Did you use dbug or a bdm?
I am about to do the same thing, and fear that I might end up with a
"dead" card if
things go wrong : )

Kind regards,

Tord Andersson

This worked with u-boot, setting CFG_RAMBOOT made it bootting from RAM
and allowed also programming u-boot to same flash as dbug so now i can
start uboot from dbug and then boot linux up
