hi to all!
So, i have a 547x/548x lite evaluation board with MCF5484 processor.
i build a linux image with LTIB and succesfully downloaded and executed colilo.
i have also downloaded my linux kernel image called "vmlinux.bin". Following the freescale's linux target image user's guide (specific for MCF54x5 and MCF54x4) after the download, it says to type "config save" and "g 2000" commands...
the commands output is shown below:

colilo>set cl mac0=00:04:9f:b5:69:3a noinitrd root=/dev/nfs rw nfsroot= ip=
oldFire:eth0:smileysurprised:ff mtdparts=phys_mapped_flash:256k(Colilo),2816k(User)
