Elinux booting trouble

Hi everyone,

I am currently trying to load elinux on the beagleboard. I have
followed several sets of instructions I have found including the
Beagleboard Wiki. I am having trouble getting elinux to load off of
MMC/SD. If I have the board powered via usb I get output to the
Hyperterminal as long as I boot from NAND. However, when I plug in
the SD card, depress the user button, induce power .. I get no
feedback on the Hyperterminal. Please advise.. I am trying to use this
board for a Senior Design Project at UT Austin.

Has anyone encountered this problem?

Thanks in advance.
