(I suppose you mean that you are running Linux 2.4 on your PC and elinux on the devboard.) Maybe you are using netfilter or something on your PC? Is there a router between your PC and the board? Does the board respond with "change IP to..." on the debug port? I know that the ping reply can take a while on arp-ping to an elinux kernel (sometimes up to a minute).
