Use objdump on the kernel elf image like so:

$ arm-unknown-linux-gnueabi-objdump -x netbsd-GUMSTIX | less

netbsd-GUMSTIX:     file format elf32-littlearm
architecture: arm, flags 0x00000112:
start address 0xa0200000

Program Header:
    LOAD off    0x00008000 vaddr 0xc0200000 paddr 0xa0200000 align 2**15
         filesz 0x00348d94 memsz 0x00348d94 flags r-x
    LOAD off    0x00358000 vaddr 0xc0550000 paddr 0xa0550000 align 2**15
         filesz 0x0006d35c memsz 0x0006d35c flags rw-
    LOAD off    0x003bd380 vaddr 0xc05bd380 paddr 0xc05bd380 align 2**15
         filesz 0x00000000 memsz 0x0005223c flags rw-
private flags = 602: [APCS-32] [VFP float format] [software FP] [has entry 


This indicates that the physical address that the image expects to at is

Here's a short excerpt from some mostly self explanatory and quick
experimentation that should be of help:

$ wget 
$ gunzip netbsd-sm0.bin-GUMSTIX.gz
