Beginner with DoC

My system:
Advantech biscuit PC
DoC2000, 72 megabyte
Linux (slackware) 2.2.6

Eventually I want to be able to boot off of the DoC, but for now, 
I'll settle for making the kernel modules work.  I read the 
documentation I could find, but still had problems.  Here's
what I did:

Downloaded mtd-19991025.tar.gz, extracted, compiled.
	I get a compile error for the various utilities.
Download mtd-19991025.diff, patch and compile -- no help,
	so I comment out the offending utilities.
insmod mtd -- cool
insmod doc2000 -- cool
Okay, now I want to see if I can see them with fdisk, but I've
	got only a few clues as to the nodes.  I tried
	mknod fla b 62 0 through fla4 for major IDs 62, 90, 31, 93,
	and 44.  Fdisk never finds any of the devices.

So, what nodes am I supposed to make?

Thanks for the help.
