Help text

The 2.4 kernel changed the kernel start address from 0x310000 to 0x810000 to make room for the Wildfire's larger SRM console. Recent consoles on Titan and Marvel machines also require the extra room.

If you're using aboot 0.7 or later, the bootloader will examine the ELF headers to determine where to transfer control. Unfortunately, most older bootloaders -- APB or MILO -- hardcoded the kernel start address rather than examining the ELF headers, and the result is a hard lockup.

Say Y if you have a broken bootloader. Say N if you do not, or if you wish to run on Wildfire, Titan, or Marvel.
