Booting Linux using a PlanetCore BootLoader

I am using the Linux Kernel 2.4.24-pre2. I included
support for this board and created an embed_config()
routine to pass in the correct board information. I am
now able to see the "relocation" messages by zImage
and it now halts with the message "Now booting the
kernel". I see that it is now hung in some delay
routine which was called from a panic routine. I am
working on trying to figure this out.
