+properly boot on the BeagleBone Black board.
-Then add the machine's features you need to be supported, configure the

+This machine describes a board using the \code{cortexa8thf-neon} tune
+and is a part of the \code{ti33x} SoC family. Add the following lines
+to your machine configuration file:
+SOC_FAMILY = "ti33x"
+require conf/machine/include/soc-family.inc
+DEFAULTTUNE ?= "cortexa8thf-neon"
+require conf/machine/include/tune-cortexa8.inc

+\section{Populate the machine configuration}
+This \code{felabs} machine needs:
+  \item To select \code{linux-ti-staging} as the preferred provider
+    for the kernel.
+  \item To select \code{u-boot-ti-staging} as the preferred provider
+    for the bootloader.
+  \item To use a \code{zImage} kernel image type.
+  \item To configure the serial console to \code{115200 ttyO0}
+  \item And to support some features:
+    \begin{itemize}
+      \item kernel26
+      \item apm
+      \item usbgadget
+      \item usbhost
+      \item vfat
+      \item ext2
+      \item ethernet
+    \end{itemize}
+\section{Build an image with the new machine}
 You can now update the \code{MACHINE} variable value in the local configuration
 and start a fresh build.
