Mine came with RedBoot 2.0. Which is odd, since the firmware date is 
earlier than yours:

	RedBoot(tm) bootstrap and debug environment [ROM]
	Non-certified release, version 2.00 - built 16:08:18, Apr  1 2003

	Platform: COYOTE (XScale)

It would seem you have a later revision of board; the IDE interface is 
supposedly not working on mine, though I've never tried to use it.

This is true. However, there is *always* an alias of SDRAM starting at 
0x10000000 (the ixp425 can have a maximum of 256MB SDRAM). So I suggest 
changing KERNEL_BASE_PHYS to 0x00200000.

The kernel is actually much happier running out of the SDRAM alias at 
0x10000000. See the comment near the end of cpu_reboot() in
