I'm trying to install a Fedora 7 Root File System on an MPC8540 based
embedded system with a Denx 2.6.21 kernel. I have read the Denx
Application note located at: 

However this App. Note says that the instructions apply only to
processors that have a full Floating Point Unit (FPU). My processor does
not have an FPU and I believe that this is causing some system hangs. 

Has anybody every successfully installed Fedora(or another major distro)
on a non-FPU system? Or, does anybody know what is needed to get it
working properly on a non FPU system? 

Any help is greatly appreciated.
