If there is one problem, then it isn't _all_ working fine, right?

To answer your question about making your program start at a lower address:

Here is a linker script that we use to test our board (i.e. ledtest etc)


  . = 0x2000;
  .vector0 :
   LONG(ABSOLUTE( main ))
  .rodata :
  .text :
  .data : 
  .bss  :

So, we made it so that the adress of 'int main(void)' will be placed at
adress 0x2000.

Then the rest is placed behind it (read only data, code, initialised
variables and variables, in that order (if I'm not mistaking)).

We put this linker-script in a file name "load.ld" and we added:
"-Wl,-Tload.ld -Wl,-N" to the gcc commandline. (with the rest of our options

Hope this might proof helpfull,
