Sheevaplug Debian Install

Upgraded from the default Ubuntu install to Debian today, mainly followed the instruction by Martin Michlmayr. Mostly worked but the instructions for after installation of Debian to the MMC card was slightly different for mine.

These are the ones that worked for me.

setenv bootargs_console console=ttyS0,115200
setenv bootcmd_mmc 'mmcinit; ext2load mmc 0:1 0x00800000 /uImage; ext2load mmc 0:1 0x01100000 /uInitrd'
setenv bootcmd 'setenv bootargs $(bootargs_console); run bootcmd_mmc; bootm 0x00800000 0x01100000'
saveenv

The main difference is the mmcinit command, on my uboot it was "mmcinit" together, for the instructions that Martin gave was "mmc init" with a space.
