in the times of openzaurus.org, there was a script to do the creating
of symlinks needed to make packages installed to another location run.
Using this script has since been strongly discouraged.
Why not install the kexecboot kernel into the flash
(http://www.angstrom-distribution.org - search for 'You can get
kexecboot for your machine from') and install a filesystem including a
kernel on to a partition on the sd card (search for 'After a few weeks
of hacking and testing I am proud to announce the online image builder')
