Booting RTEMS/GeSys on a Motorola MVME23xx (PowerPC) Board

On the MVME23xx series boards, RTEMS/GeSys is booted using the Motorola PPCBug firmware (and part 2). First, you need to configure the firmware settings using the 'env' and 'NIOT' commands. The settings you want to look for are:

env
Network PReP-Boot Mode Enable [Y/N] = Y? Y
NIOT
BOOTP/RARP Request Control: Always/When-Needed (A/W)=A? A

My complete settings can be found here.

Once the correct settings have been entered, simply type the NBO command to initiate the boot process. There are several 'env' options for autostarting the board. Consult the PPCBug documentation.
