Hi Peter,

It's already supported with that kernel...

If you are running the latest u-boot/x-load (2010.03/1.4.4ss) on the
beagle with a boot.scr boot script file the "buddy=${buddy}" in the
bootargs will take care of it..

If your running a custom bootargs in nand from an older install, just
update the bootargs with buddy=zippy or buddy=zippy2 depending on
which of the zippy's you have...
