Yes you are right. 
I mean that Load a U-Boot from NAND FLASH not NOR FLASH.

Currently SMDK2410 Reference Board boots up from nor flash as you know.
But SMDK2410 support NAND Boot Up so I want to use that feature.

You could get information about SMDK2410 board at

Please define "boot".
What do you have in mind? Boot U-Boot from a Smart Media Card? [Can't
be done.] Load a Linux kernel from a Smart Media Card and  start  it?

It may be possible, depending on your definition of "boot".
