you have left them at the factory default then you shouldn't need to do
anything here.
+Note: To boot from USB disk you need u-boot that supports 'ext2load usb'
+command. You need to setup TFTP server, load u-boot from there and
+flash it to NOR flash.
+
+Beware! Flashing bootloader is potentially dangerous operation that can

+--- Booting from USB disk ---
+
+ 1. Flash partitioned image to the USB disk
+
+ # dd if=core-image-minimal-mpc8315e-rdb.wic of=/dev/sdb
+
+ 2. Plug USB disk into the MPC8315 board
+
+ 3. Connect the board's first serial port to your workstation and then start up
+ your favourite serial terminal so that you will be able to interact with
+ the serial console. If you don't have a favourite, picocom is suggested:
+
+ $ picocom /dev/ttyUSB0 -b 115200
+
+ 4. Power up or reset the board and press a key on the terminal when prompted
+ to get to the U-Boot command line
+
+ 5. Optional. Load the u-boot.bin from the USB disk:
+
+ => usb start
+ => ext2load usb 0:1 200000 u-boot.bin
+
+ and flash it to NOR flash as described above.
+
+ 6. Set fdtaddr and loadaddr. This is not necessary if you set them before.
+
+ => setenv fdtaddr a00000
+ => setenv loadaddr 1000000
+
+ 7. Load the kernel and dtb from first partition of the USB disk:
+
+ => usb start
+ => ext2load usb 0:1 $loadaddr uImage
+ => ext2load usb 0:1 $fdtaddr dtb
+
+ 8. Set bootargs and boot up the device
+
+ => setenv bootargs root=/dev/sdb2 rw rootwait console=ttyS0,115200
+ => bootm $loadaddr - $fdtaddr
+
+
--- Booting from NFS root ---
Load the kernel and dtb (device tree blob), and boot the system as follows:
