[qtopia on freerunner] - What files do I have to download?

I would like to boot Qtopia from SD, but couldn't yet...

Can I do that with the image of Qtopia you mentioned ?
I extracted the files form the .jffs2 and copied them on the microSD card.
I then put the uImage bin in /boot

But trying to boot from the freerunner on SD I only get :
"Unable to read uImage.bin from mmc 1:1
Booting image at 32000000
Bad magic number"

I tried with SD card formated in ext3 and ext2.

Was that a correct method ? What is wrong ?

ps. to extract from .jffs2 I used the method found here (I use ubuntu
8.04, 64 bit) :
"Kernel Memory Emulating a MTD :
mknod /tmp/mtdblock0 b 31 0
modprobe mtdblock
modprobe mtdram total_size=65536 erase_size=256
modprobe jffs2
dd if=/pathtoimage/rootfs.jffs2 of=/tmp/mtdblock0
mkdir /media/jffs2
mount -t jffs2 /tmp/mtdblock0 /media/jffs2
