You should maybe check the debian-m68k mailing list first before doing so. The 
LoadToFastRam option was once added by Andreas Schwab, because apparently some 
kernels only worked when loaded to FastRam, some others only when loaded to

Yes, but we are talking about emulators here. Checks for real HW are the task 
of the bootstra.tos :) BTW, do you know of a current source for that program?

Thats not an easy task. You definitely don't want to compile the kernel in 
linux-m68k, not even in emulators, that would take ages. Also i think most of 
the drivers are already compiled as modules, no idea what can be left out of 
the kernel to make it smaller.
