Do you expect to be able to download to ROM? Surely not.

Why would you try to download a ROM application - which, as you point
out, lives at the same location as RedBoot?

If you only have 32K of RAM, I guess there is not much point of
downloading anything. You should probably just be putting your
applications directly in ROM.
Unless you plan to download applications of no more than 32K (minus
whatever RedBoot takes up) data to RAM and use RedBoot to flash it at
the top end of ROM. And then launch it from RedBoot.
