The SDRAM is Micron 48LC16M16A2-75, the NAND is Samsung K9F1G08U0B.

Actually, taking a look at the RAM datasheet of the reveals that with a
3 clock RAS->CAS latency the chip can can merrily work with a 133MHz
bus clock, so the S3C's FCLK could be boosted up to 532MHz. A
30% speed increase is not something to sneeze on...

I'll try my bestto grok them :-)

No. Here's what goes on, with unimportant stuff deleted:

mini2440:/ printenv

mini2440:/ nfsroot=/some/other/root
mini2440:/ PATH=$PATH:/some/location
mini2440:/ printenv

mini2440:/ saveenv

mini2440:/ reset
