Yes.  Goto and click
edit.  It will lead you setting up an account.  THe editing markup is 
very minimal.  I have put some minimal info in as a starting point.

Likely a different interrupt structure or interrupt controller.  Hard to 
say.  What NIC does it have?

Likely the same issue as the NIC -- slightly different hardware.

Agreed.  I encourage people to write BSP HOWTOs and hints and put them 
in the Wiki.  At one level a WIki is groupware capturing useful tidbits
of knowledge that no single person can remember or know.

I think this is a case where the board is slightly different from the 
others in the family and the BSP itself will require tweaking.

Next step.. what are the peripherals chips on the board.  Board level
block diagram time.

FYI linking to documentation from a Wiki page is useful.
