I know uboot from an other embedded system, where it was installed, and it is 
able to download a kernel from a tftp server to the memory. This is done by 
the "tftpboot" command.
There is also a "dhcp" command so uboot can get an ip for the network.

But i dont know if uboot can handle the usb as a network device. Someone has 
already tried this?
