I'd be interested in your modularized M-Systems driver if you'd like to
share it.

I think I'll stick to using syslinux for booting from flash right now.
I've only briefly worked with syslinux. If it works as it looks it might
even be a better solution for me than lilo. I can boot the kernel and the
compressed ramdisk from the doc2000 using syslinux. Once the system is up
the module for the doc2000 can be loaded, whether it be the M-sys or mtd
