Boot loader for 5251

Dear all,
 
 I'm interested in finding out if it's possible to get a boot loader for the 5251 eval board. It has no network card, so booting from a network device is a no go. But it does have an SD card slot.
 
 What I'd *LOVE* is to be able to build a linux filesystem on an SD card, pop it into the 5251 board and then get the bootloader in flash to boot from it and load up my newly compiled/tweaked linux system.
 
 This *should* be possible shouldn't it? or is this never going to happen?
 
 If not, is there another way of getting a new build of an OS into the board other than through serial? the 15-20 minute wait for download each time I want to test is a *REAL* pain.
 
Paul
