I am currently doing something like that with my poodle. I have a custom
2.6.17 kernel that changes the location of / from flash to SD and use that
for my daily usage. I also have a second SD Card with Custom Angstrom
kernels, again modified to boot from SD. In flash I have a console-image
with kexec-tools installed. The kernels are stored on /boot of the
respective SD cards. To boot the card, I just kexec -l the kernel and run
kexec -e to boot.
I hope this helps,
