First, this is off topic on the linuxppc-embedded list.  Please  send
U-Boot related questions to the u-boot-users list. Thanks.

What exactly did you do?  "I  Burn  u_boot.src"?  There  is  no  file
u_boot.src.  Do  you  mean  u_boot.srec? Note that this is a S-Record
file - are you sure you need to use the S-record file?

Where exactly in flash did you program it? How did  you  verify  that
the flash programming worked?

And what exactly do you mean by "it can't  boot"?  (An  why  are  you
shouting?) Is the board completely dead? Is there Some output? Which?
Does U-Boot run, but fails to boot Linux? Or what?

Best regards,

Wolfgang Denk
