I tried to use this particular card to run Debian as described at
http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/unpack.html
with no luck.

Boot stops with `Bad Magic Number' message:


SDHC found. Card desciption is:
Manufacturer:       0x27, OEM "PH"
Product name:       "SD08G", revision 3.0
Serial number:      2952790466
Manufacturing date: 4/2010
CRC:                0x00, b0 = 0

** Unable to read "/uInitrd" from mmc 0:1 **

** Unable to read "/uImage" from mmc 0:1 **
## Booting image at 00800000 ...
Bad Magic Number


Debian runs w/o problems on Patriot 6 class SDHC cards.

Just in case somebody plans to buy LX series card.

Did you try to run mmcinit twice?

No.

Running mmcinit twice means, modifying:

setenv bootcmd_mmc 'mmcinit; ext2load mmc 0:1 0x01100000 /uInitrd; ext2load mmc 0:1 0x00800000 /uImage'

to

setenv bootcmd_mmc 'mmcinit; mmcinit; ext2load mmc 0:1 0x01100000 /uInitrd; ext2load mmc 0:1 0x00800000 /uImage'

?

Have you checked on another system that uInitrd really exists at the top-level of the first partition on the SD card?

If, say, you forgot this bit:
Quote
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot
it would be in a boot directory on the second partition.

Exactly as described by birdman. _I was sure_ I have checked that
boot partitions is non empty but it has appeared on the second check
that it was untrue.

Sorry for false alarm.
