[Debian] installed on uSD ext3 using uboot

reading the SHR manual I noticed that:
Loading the Kernel
A pair of u-boot commands must be used to load the kernel from SD. First is
"mmcinit", which will cause u-boot to detect the card. Next is a command to
load a file into memory - either "fatload" or "ext2load" depending on
whether the kernel is on a FAT filesytem or an ext2/ext3 filesystem.
The command syntax is:
fatload mmc 1:<p> 0x32000000 <filepath>
ext2load mmc 1:<p> 0x32000000 <filepath>
where <p> is the partition number, and <filepath> is the path to the file
that is to be loaded.
but I passed the ext2load parameter to uboot without <filepath>. Uboot was
not able to load uImage.bin because it was in /boot directory, a symlink of
uboot.bin did the trick :)
