Indeed. To make those changes I need the full toolchain that, as you
say, isn't that stable. Wasn't planning to get into LinuxBIOS hacking
_that_ much ;-) just polishing the ash scripts.
Ah, well. I will refrain for the time being from hacking on those
scripts, specially since I don't have a PLCC Flash chip (is that
standard hw I can source independently?).

bricking this board. And what I can contribute on the LinuxBIOS side
is limited at best. ]
On a related angle, the current scripts try NAND first, and USB
second. If I install to NAND, is there a way to force a boot from USB?
