Why the 4801 instead of the 452x?
Assuming you want to boot something other than RedBoot (or eCos) on the
board, you would need to implement a 'fake' BIOS layer. Even linux
talks to the bios a bit early in the boot process.
And why RedBoot instead of, say, u-boot (which appears to already have
the fake-BIOS work done)?

Both, but I have a feeling this would end up being somewhat
'specialized' and would require
a small amount of "assist" from Soren.
If you're looking for someone to do the work, let me know.
