You will need an SD anyway to boot the kernel afaik. At least that is
how I do it.
I took the latest upstream kernel and cross-compiled it for the
pandaboard. If needed I can dig up the kernel config I used for it
(which I hopefully still have somewhere)
You then just need to edit the kernel boot parameters to boot from usb
(I used an usb disk)
I used http://wiki.debian.org/EmDebian/CrossDebootstrap for making my
armhf initial root file system. I had to play around a bit with it to
get it running and starting well, but I do not remember the details.

Well once you have debian and apt running I guess this should be a breeze.

Of course. Those are just reference systems. And there should be Angstrom also.
