Making debian the default boot

Since I only ever boot my freerunner under Debian I do get pretty sick 
of having to play with the boot loader menu every time I boot. It's 
especially painful when the freerunner has crashed to the boot process 
does a disk check then (usually) reboots a 2nd time, requiring a 2nd 
intervention with the boot load.

So, what I'd like to do is make the default boot (even using the NOR 
boot loader, so the real factory default) start my Debian system. The 
obvious way to do this seems to be to put a second boot loader into the 
flash which then mounts the SD and boots from there.  But I have no idea 
how to do this. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks, Jonathan
