Default Interesting thing with SDcard and the X

I have been trying to figure out someway to load linux on the X and yesterday I decided to try and simply install it to the SD card. It installed correctly to the sdcard. But the thing is now everytime the sdcard is put in the phone the phone reboots and freezes on the M logo. regardless of when the sdcard is put in. If the card is put it and the phone is off turning it on causes the same thing to happen it freezes at the M logo.

What Im thinking is that the phone is reading the sdcard and seeing the ext2 partition and tries to load that bootloader. Thus causeing the phone to reboot and then the sdcard is not mounted yet so the bootloader can not find the proper partition to load.

Anyone have any other ideas?
