The actual MPC750 boot loader is a bit complicated but in 99, the 
official linux PPC prep boot was failing on MCP750. I had to pick up and 
use another one writen by Gabriel Paubert. Today I would probably use 
ppcboot even if is primarily target is more the embedded ones (e.g 8xx) 
as it runs on so many platforms or use plain linux boot code that is 
very simple and indeed now working.

Just probably very sub-obtimal concerning cache, compiler optimisation 
and so on.

BTW : using reply, I receive an error message on your email address...
