Currently the SD device on the Vampire is not bootable, however you should be able to create a small boot on the IDE, say a small CF card, that mounts the SD device, then hands over the rest of the booting on to that.

I used to do this with my SCSI drive on my A2000 - it would boot just enough to mount the XSurf IDE - when it handed over the rest of booting (CW3.9BB1&2) to the 40GB 2.5" IDE - worked fine and was a tad faster too (about 3MiB/per second) compared to 2.1MiB on the SCSI (040 was having its cycles spanked however!)

I will be trying partial booting on the Vampire SD device out a bit later - will let you know how it goes =)
