I had to add a menu entry to the NAND uboot if that's what you mean - see 
below. These are as in the wiki except for minor changes to account for my 
configuration. The sd_max_clk is to try to fix the problem with my SD rootfs 
getting I/O errors, but it doesn't. Both partitions are ext3, and the kernel 
is in boot/uImage exactly where the tar file put it. I did edit /etc/fstab on 
each partition to put the correct details in for the root partition.

menu_9=Boot FDOM from SD part.1: setenv bootargs ${bootargs_base} 
rootfstype=ext3 root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rootdelay=10 ${mtdparts} ro 
glamo_mci.sd_max_clk=10000000; mmcinit; ext2load mmc 1:1 0x32000000 
boot/uImage; bootm 0x32000000

menu_10=Boot 2008.x from SD part.2: setenv bootargs ${bootargs_base} 
rootfstype=ext3 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootdelay=10 ${mtdparts} ro 
glamo_mci.sd_max_clk=10000000; mmcinit; ext2load mmc 1:2 0x32000000 
boot/uImage; bootm 0x32000000
