Great thanks to Greg for your reply about the reboot (5307/ints.c) problem(but I missed the mail, and found the reply by searching the maillist on WEB, how could this happen! :( bug of the maillist??)
You are absolutely right: 
The only problem is that the soft reboot does not do a real hard reset of all the peripherals.

New problem report-->
the latest uclinux-dist-20030305 is tested not working for the MCF5249C3,
could not pass the IDE probe and go dead there!
