I gave the SL4P SD Installer a try to install SuperZaxxon today but it didn't reall work out of the box
Autoboot.txt looked like this:
setenv bootargs root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rw rootwait vram=6272K omapfb.vram=0:3000K mmc_core.removable=0
ext2load mmc 0 0x80300000 /boot/uImage
Boot.txt looked like this:
setenv bootargs debug root=/dev/mmcblk0p3 rw rootdelay=2 vram=6272K omapfb.vram=0:3000K psplash=false mmc_core.removable=0
fatload mmc 0:1 0x80300000 uImage
Both of them didn't seem to work:
Without pressing the right trigger the Pandora booted from NAND.
With pressing it the screen just got black again.
the uImage in BOOT seems to be an old/wrong one since it is only 2.002.944 Bytes large (see below)
there is a BOOT folder in the ROOT partition that seems to contain the correct files (both kernels).
The BOOT partition contaions quite many subfolders (differently from the install via Daves/Notaz's "SD Installer":

I had to manually copy the boot folder to ROOT and change autoboot.txt to this to make it work:
setenv bootargs root=/dev/mmcblk0p3 rw rootwait vram=6272K omapfb.vram=0:3000K mmc_core.removable=0
ext2load mmc 0:3 0x80300000 /boot/uImage-3
Maybe the default autoboot.txt is supposed to work differently than I expected?
It was still booting from NAND but maybe it uses the filesystem on the card? (Please remember: I'm a Linux-noob!)?
I also didn't like about the SL4P installer that I had no possibility to choose the size of the partitions (except for swap).
(And it asked "Do you really want to proceed?" a little too often
So after all Dave/Notaz's updated installer worked better for me.
But maybee I'll just try to set up a card manually now... :huh:
I'm looking forward to try the CodeBlocks and Lazarus PND's
