Are you using 2.4 or 2.6?

Support for the ML300 & ML403 is in the mainline 2.6 git tree.  As
long as you've got an xparameters.h file for your FPGA bitstream,  you
should be able to port a 2.6 kernel really easily.

If you want to use 2.4, you can pull the linuxppc rsync mirror which
has ML300 support in it.

page for the RSYNC mirror)
