and what is the appropriate way to set a static ip. I am booting using
cramfs, and I need a static address but i've found that the only way to
do that is setting ip=<address> and
nfsroot=<serveraddress>:/<serverpath>. even though root is set to
cramfs. I don't need the nfsroot line b/c nfs isn't used, its just the
only way i've found to get the system not to attempt dhcp. when i remove
the nfsroot line and i just leave the ip line it still tries to boot via

You can skip the DHCP in the boot sequence, by setting the linux kernel
boot parameter "ip=off" in the u-boot bootargs.
