Hello Ameet,

>Do you have a Xilinx ML403 board?

Yes, I have ML403 board. The reason why I rename the xparameters_ml300 as 
xparameters_ml403 is that EDK generates the driver for ML300(the xparameter 
header file is xparameters_ml300).

I did try that. There is also no information. At that time, I guessed that 
it was because of the missing of SystemACE driver.Do you think is that the 
problem of others, for example the kernel? Before I use 2.6 version, I have 
successfully booted a linux 2.4 from CF card.

I use this version only because I want to implement the Temac driver in the 
link of 
http://ozlabs.org/pipermail/linuxppc-embedded/2006-March/022365.html It 
looks that the patches are specific for that version.

I am really waiting for that!
