You can change the bootscript from Redboot:

RedBoot> fconfig
Run script at boot: true
Boot script:
.. fis load ramdisk
.. fis load kernel
.. exec
Enter script, terminate with empty line
>> load vmlinux -b 0x00200000
>> exec -c "console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/sda1 mem=512M@0xa0000000"
Boot script timeout (1000ms resolution): 5
Use BOOTP for network configuration: false
Gateway IP address:
Local IP address:
Local IP address mask:
Default server IP address:
Console baud rate: 115200
DNS server IP address:
GDB connection port: 9000

Force console for special debug messages: false

It will fill in the current settings, so its just enter on most of the lines.

Flashing the kernel to flash shouldn't be a problem. But if you screw
up... havn't found the JTAG yet...
