Ok, cool. Which is the simplest ARM board for me to use as a template?

I'm not much of a coder, more a "copy and paste monkey", I'm afraid, so 
I dunno how well I'll do :-) But I'm willing to give it a shot!

I've looked at the arch/arm/mach-s3c24xx directory, which *seems* to be 
the simplest (in terms of fewest files :-) ). Would this be a reasonable 
place to start?
