Then I might try, as you suggested, the value 0x80000000.  But we still need
the other two parameters: `--kernel zImage' and `my-boot.img'.

There's no /bin directory, and under /sbin there's no busybox.  So I here lack
three information: `--kernel zImage', `my-boot.img' and busybox.  Without them
I can't continue following Mikael Q Kuisma's tutorial, I'm afraid.  He himself
wouldn't help.
