Oh, I have found that stuff :D
And I'm confused now.

It seems, I have to write my own entry16.inc code for the gx1.
The default entry16.inc should enable the cache for example, but there 
are written false values to the cr0 register.

This is done twice for the gx1.
First in entry16.inc
Later with enable_fpu.inc

Is it posible to remove the line from the Config.lb for the fpu?
