sorry for this confusion, but what you did and what I am doing are 
totally unrelated.

I am merely proposing to mod the standard LinuxBIOS makefile so that the 
ldscript.ld is not a sequence of INCLUDE statements, but instead a 
sequence of ld commands. (Sorry, folks, I have not done this yet)

What you did is hack the ldscript.ld script to make things fit. This is 
going to burn you big time next time you need to run buildtarget -- you 
will lose those changes. You need to set proper options in your 
targets/tyan/s2895/Config.lb -- for best results, however, make your own 
copy of that file.

Please see my linux journal web article, wherein the way you size rom 
images is explained.

Sorry you are having trouble, we are looking at this board too and will 
try to make sure it works.
