I'd use tar instead of cp but I'm not sure that's the problem.  But
what about /sys and /proc?  Did you copy those.  I'd exclude those and
just create empty directories.

You mean to write it to flash?  You could just run flash-kernel
2.6.18-6-ixp4xx.  But if 2.6.18-6-ixp4xx is installed on your machine,
I could also give you a firmware image that you could write with
