If everything is properly configured, hopefully :)

I didn't even dd the card; I just used fdisk to delete all partitions, saved,
quit fdisk, and then restarted fdisk to create a new ext3 partition, iirc.

Seems like a quick thing to try to rule out silly problems.

Since you're using filo, you don't even need to have grub installed in the
MBR on the card (well, unless you want to use grub from the proprietary bios,
that is!). Filo won't care about that - it just needs to find the first
partition to load your kernel.
