SD-booting in u-boot was broken for several months but as of late 
January it is fixed (or at least worked-around; the root cause of the 
bug has not yet been identified). The link you posted will boot from SD, 
but it has other bugs that have been fixed in later versions.

Regarding the original problem, it is likely related to the 2.6.24 
kernel. The GTA01 SD-card driver was broken for a while. My 
understanding is that it is now functional, but that it is still 
configured to emit a large amount of debugging information. Things 
should work fine with a kernel as long as you have the 
corresponding modules installed on your root filesystem.
