[debian] problems with debian and u-boot

i installed debian today, but can't get it to boot. i ran the
'configure-uboot' script from the debian wiki while the phone was
booted to NAND flash (press and hold power, then immediately press and
hold aux), then powered down the phone

there were no errors reported after the script complete, and i've
tried flashing the 'quiet' script and the plain verbose script a
couple of times each

now, when i try to start it, either by pressing the power button
alone, or going through the nand menu, i get an error about 'wrong
format' of a partition. i'm assuming this is to do with the fat/ext
issue for the kernel, but as i followed the instructions to use an ext
partition, i'm not sure what's wrong. it feels like i'm missing
something silly - i got this working last year

any help appreciated
