OK, I changed  KERNEL_BASE_PHYS to 0x00200000 in mk.ixdp425 and in 
ixdp425_start.S :
    /*      .word   0x10200000 - 0x4000 */
            .word   0x00200000 - 0x4000

I rebuilt kernel with :
    ./ -a armeb -m evbarm kernel=IXDP425

And then I tried it :
    RAM: 0x00000000-0x04000000, 0x0001f960-0x03fd1000 available
    FLASH: 0x50000000 - 0x51000000, 128 blocks of 0x00020000 bytes each.
    RedBoot> load -r -b 0x00200000 -h netbsd.bin
    Using default protocol (TFTP)
    Raw file loaded 0x00200000-0x004b3cd3, assumed entry at 0x00200000

    [ the card doesn't respond anymore ...]

Perhaps should I try to reconfigure redboot to alias memory at 0x10000000 ?

Cheers, Franck.
