"Android Market" is Missing from Nook Color running  Honeycomb 3 on SD Card

I have a Nook Color that is running Honeycomb 3 on a Micro SD card. It works perfectly other than the fact that the Android Market is missing. If I try to download an app from the Google Droid Website using the Nook, it tells me that my Gmail account is not associated with a Droid phone (which is true).

How can I get the Android Market program installed on the Nook so that I can download apps?

This Nook Color is version 1.1.0 and will not "take" the root. I've tried about twenty times to root it using two different SD cards and two separate downloads of Auto-Nooter 3.0.0 from different mirrors. What am I doing wrong?

you cannot add the market to the sd card honeycomb install. That is considered a preview only. The only way to get honeycomb with marketplace is to remove the internal rom and replace it with a honeycomb rom.

I don't recommend this as you cannot recover the original image. Without making a backup.
