Yes, it can!
There are two options, use a kernel simply compiled for ram,
load it via tftp, cp it to an erased flashed area.
then you can start it by copying it to ram and jump to the start address inside the kernel.
the second more simple solution is to build a compressed kernel,
flash it e.g. to 0xbfd00000 and then simply go there for start.

Pls refer the Yamon help for any details, you can add a start variable to the Yamon config which is executed after two seconds if you don't stop this with Ctrl-c via serial.

(set start 'go 0xbfd00000 root=/dev/mtdblock1' or whatever...)

Yes I did it that way. :) Thanks.
So is there other nice loaders for this board?
