Can be done. What it's needed is:

	- first partition (RedBoot) must be a primary one. (use fdisk to partition 
the disk).
	- create a standard DOS MBR using fdisk /MBR.

	- To build a suitable RedBoot use the RedBootDOC patch from 
<http://www.vsr.si/ecos>. Follow the standard PC RedBoot build procedure, but 
instead of HAL_STARTUP_FLOPPY use the HAL_STARTUP_DISK CDL option.

	- Finally do a "dd conv=sync if=redboot.bin of= /dev/<yourdisk>1"

Thats all.
