Hi all,

I am working with the same processor, I am loading the vmlinux using
JTAG(RISCWATCH) in the SDRAM. I am not sure abt the loaction. I am loading at
0x00020000. Can you suggest me exactly atr what loaction we should load the
vmlinux image and where we should jump to start the kernel.

Thanks & regards,
