Gen3 Bootloader reload options

Well, I went ahead and hooked up the serial port to my Gen3, and it works; the baud rate is 115kB. I see a boot up message that matches the one on OpenInkpot etc. but it gets hallfway along and then....

DZ Test vivi code
Press Return to start the LINUX now, any other key for vivi
Copy linux kernel from 0x00030000 to 0x30008000, size = 0x00100000 ... done
zImage magic = 0x016f2818
Setup linux parameters at 0x30000100
linux command line is: "noinitrd root=/dev/mtdblock/2 init=/linuxrc console=ttyS0"
NOW, Booting Linux......
Uncompressing Linux............................................
crc error
-- System halted

So, it looks like the compressed Linux image may be currupted. I can get to the "vivi" command line:

DZ Test vivi code
Press Return to start the LINUX now, any other key for vivi
type "help" for help.
vivi> help
cpu [{cmds}] -- Manage cpu clocks
reset -- Reset the system
param [set|show|save|reset] -- set/get parameter
part [add|del|show|reset] -- Manage MTD partitions
mem [{cmds}] -- Manage Memory
load {...} -- Load a file to RAM/Flash
go <addr> <a0> <a1> <a2> <a3> -- jump to <addr>
dump <addr> <length> -- Display (hex dump) a range of memory.
call <addr> <a0> <a1> <a2> <a3> -- jump_with_return to <addr>
boot [{cmds}] -- Booting linux kernel
help [{cmds}] -- Help about help?

So, lots of possible options. Does anybody know how I could reload the thing at this point? I have the update kernal files etc from Bookeen, but I'm not sure how to proceed at this point. Perhaps I should switch this over to the Gen3 Developers Forum too
