Thanks Dan for the reply.

I set the TLB as you mentioned on the DM9000 driver in YAMON.
UINT32 pte[5];

pte[0] = 0;                                       /* TLB Entry : 0    */
pte[1] = 0x01FFE000;                      /* Page Mask : 16MB */
pte[2] = 0xD0000000;                       /* EntryHi: 0xD0000000 */
pte[3] = (0xD0000000>>2) | 0x0017;  /* EntryLo0            */
pte[4] = (0xD0100000>>2) | 0x0017;  /* EntryLo1            */

sys_tlb_write(pte);                 /* set the TLB entry 0 */
CP0_wired_write(2);                 /* wired register for 2 entry */

After setting, I could access DM9000 with the Base address 0xD0000000.
In here, I have some more questions.
1. I set the 1 TLB entry, so others does not affect the address translation.
   so Whenever I use the 0xD0000000, it always converted to 0xD 0000 0000
   on the bootloader.
   Am I right?
2. On the linux, If I want to use ioremap for Dm9000, Do I need to set the TLB
    and do not need to change the ioremap source code ?

Thank you in advance,
