You are much better off using the mainline U-Boot at this point.  It is
far more stable and it's been getting better with each release.  I
looked at the 1.3.4 patch, and nearly all of those features are in
2009.01, plus more.  The only major difference is that upstream does not
support the AT91SAM9G20-EK.

With that being said, this link seems to work:


You should probably contact the folks at Linux4Sam to tell them that
their instructions are incorrect.
