Lightbulb Booting kernel from a memory chip

I am trying to boot Linux kernel from a memory chip (specifically from a Scan-disk SD Card) but using dd seems not be working.
So can you please suggest whatever comes in your mind?

I am trying to make a thin client.

Which will boot Linux kernel but after booting it will ask for a session from the server Running on MS Server 2008.

Thanking You in advance...

Unless the BIOS of the machine you are using supports booting from the SD card, you can't do it that way. However, for about $9, you can get an adapter that makes the SD card look like a standard bootable 2.5" IDE drive.
