I wish I understood the bootloader process and memory map for rtems with 
respect to the mvme2xxx.

It' s not directly documented. My frustration with RTEMs is that the 
documentation is not new-user friendly. My guess is that you'd have had 
to been hacking on it a while to understand what hell is going on. I've 
studied the BSP docs over and over and it is still unclear how one is 
even to procede to start a new bsp, much less modify an old one.
