Can you access that partition on your Linux host using a CF adapter?


Can you access that partition from the uboot prompt?

 Dunno, I don't think I have uboot set to let me do that.
 precompiled setup, I'd have to work on it.
How did you format that partition?  mkfs.msdos?

  Yes, mkdosfs -F 16 /dev/sda1  (its a fat16, 32Mb partition)
