YAMON is prob the default right now.  It has support for loading a kernel
over tftp.  

I do not think it is OS though.  I maybe wrong, I will have to check the
source I have to see if it is or not.  I am currently adding  BOOTP support
to it, along with some other options.  If it is OS, then I will be providing
these back to the community.

Hello there,

I am trying to porting Prom monitor code to
appropriate MIPS bootloader for loading Linux kernel

I ever make a test sucessfully with ppcboot's to load MBXloader
for transfering control to linux kernel (hardhat).

But I can not find the entry, and make decision what kind of BOOT LOADER
to use on MIPS platform.

I have the ddb5476 board type linux from montavista,
Could anybody give me some suggestion?
