My question was which partition to put the md.conf? Does it go
with the mb.bin or it can be put at any other partition?
Thanks & Regards,

It will be easier if you change fdisk's units to sectors, so it prints
the start of the partition for you. I get this from my set up:
Command (m for help): u
Changing display/entry units to sectors
Command (m for help): p
Disk /dev/hda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 155061 cylinders, total 156301488 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 63 20159 10048+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda2 20160 15646175 7813008 83 Linux
/dev/hda3 15646176 31272191 7813008 83 Linux
/dev/hda4 31272192 72481247 20604528 5 Extended
/dev/hda5 31272255 32249951 488848+ 82 Linux swap
/dev/hda6 32250015 47875967 7812976+ 83 Linux
So (I think, if there are no gotchas - it's a while since I played with
this stuff) the YAMON command would be:
YAMON> disk read hda 1ec18a0 ff 800d0000; go 800d0000
where 1ec18a0 is (32250015 + 1) in hex.

As it stands the bootloader will look in /dev/hda2 if you are running BE
and /dev/hda3 if LE. For now just try getting MIPSboot to start :)
