Build kernel.AP91 with your buildscripts and trying to tftpboot the
board with that but getting following errors in /var/log/messages on
my tftpserver (my laptop)

flymockour-l7 in.tftpd[11247]: tftpd: oack: Host is down - when I do
"tftpboot 0x80050000 kernel.AP91" and tftp transfer never gets done
(keeps timing out)

I am not sure what this means but I will try putting switch in-between
my laptop and the board and see if I can make this thing to work.

Anybody with some clue what this means?
