| Minor correction - the parameter for ext2load and fatload is
| <device>:<partition>, so partition 2 would be "ext2load mmc 1:2 ...".
| IIRC this is documented in the online help for "fatload" but not for
| "ext2load".
| For troubleshooting you can also run "mmcinit; ext2ls mmc 1:2 /" from

| "fatls" command to look at a VFAT partition.

My mistake, I just edited my canned one I use for first partition off
the top of my head.  One way or another personally I only ever pulled
kernel from the first partition on SD Card myself, VFAT or EXT3.
