Beagleboard support in NetBSD


   I am trying to boot NetBSD on the Beagle board (beagleboard.org). The
Board has U-boot as the default boot loader. I built NetBSD 5.0 kernel
and cross-compiled for the beagle board

Followed http://www.netbsd.org/docs/guide/en/chap-build.html to setup
the environment.

   I tried booting the nedbsd.bin kernel file from the u-boot but am not
successful. Following these steps.

1. Boot the target, will get u-boot prompt.

2. load the netbsd.bin kernel. For load address I followed the
netbsd.map file. 

   u-boot# loady 0x80300000

3. execute the kernel.

   u-boot# go 0x80300000

After this step, the execution hangs and I dont see any output on the
minicom screen.
