Nokia N-series is a Symbian device and pretty closed

At least you would need to have an access to boot loader (which is probably signed), in order to change it to boot anywhere else than normal memory address. Boot loader should be hacked (or re-engineered) to be capable or reading memory card filesystem, whatever you choose to mount it.

All this above requires quite a bunch of knowledge.
