booting Android from a Cheap mp3/mp4 player on my eeepc

my usb stick is not booting anymore , i guess is time to buy another so i had a cheap mp3/mp4 player with z80 cpu ?!!

lsusb: ID 10d6:1101 Actions Semiconductor Co., Ltd D-Wave 2GB MP4 Player / AK1025 MP3/MP4 Player

i formated the /dev/sdb as ext4 just to be sure
then used the usual android usb instructions

zcat android-x86-1.6-r2_usb.img.gz | dd of=/dev/sdb

Android booted quite niceley on eeepc with wireless and all
next is to build the 2.2 / 2.3 image and burn it on the player's partition
I wanted to test the quake on it but it said that sdcard is not present
so i have to mount somehow the sdcard(the debian parition) and
install from there (put the data there)
