well, i tried yesterday to install qtopia to an sd card.
while using one single partition ext3 and simply unpacking the tar
(complete filesystem, not the jffs2/img tar from qtopia) the fr was unable
to boot from the sd card (the error message disappears far to early to be
able to jot it down).
i switched to vfat boot partition and ext2 for the filesystem and
everytheng was fine -- except taht you nedd to put the uImage.bin directly
into the boot partition, not a boot/ directory!
poses the question which u-boot it is that makes the fr booting from an
ext3 sd card.
