No, you're right - I'm not using initrd.

Installing DOCBoot.
doc_seg = 0xD000    setup_seg = 0x2000

Loading kernel ... page 0x.... <- this seems to start at zero and be 
going up at roughly 0x200 a second up to 0xFFFF then restarting at zero 
again over and over.

Just to give you a clearer picture, the bzImage is 1148021 bytes and 
doc_spl is 1187472 bytes. The nandwrite command wrote doc_spl from 0 up 
to the erase block at 0x118000 which is well within the 0x208000 
firmware area. The board is a Boser HS-4020 v1.4.

Unfortunately, assembler is greek to me!
