Unable to boot Linux 2.4.24 on a custom board similar to 8260ADS

I have worked for sometime now with Motorola processors and other RTOS
however I am a newbie to Linux as an embedded OS.  I am attempting to port
ELDK 3.0 (Linux 2.4.24) to our board that somewhat resembles the 8260ADS.  I
found u-boot to easy to use and understand.

To get u-boot to work with my board I defined the pin outs in file:


and I setup the physical memory base addresses in the file:


My board's memory map is different from the standard 8260ADS board.  For
u-boot to work on my board I redefined the following found in the header

#define CFG_FLASH_BASE		0xFC000000

#define CFG_DEFAULT_IMMR	0xFA200000
#define CFG_IMMR		0xFA200000
#define CFG_BCSR		0xFA100000
#define CFG_SDRAM_BASE		0x00000000
#define CFG_LSDRAM_BASE		0xFB000000

#define CFG_BR0_PRELIM		CFG_FLASH_BASE | 0x00000801 /* ID DiskOnChip
#define CFG_OR0_PRELIM		0xFF800836
#define CFG_BR1_PRELIM		CFG_BCSR | 0x00000801       /* ID DiskOnChip
#define CFG_OR1_PRELIM		0xFF800836

My question is how do I make the above corresponding changes above to Linux?

When I attempt to boot linux it appears to hang in the function

  __delay in entry.S

The contents of the LOG_BUF are as follows:

=> md 1c0094
 <6>Memory BAT mapping: BAT2=128Mb, BAT3=0Mb, residual: 0Mb.

In addition, I have attached my kernel .config file.

Any suggestions on how I should proceed?

Thanks in advance,
