Nop, only DOC Millennium has the 512 byte SRAM area for the IPL. On power-up
the internal download logic automatically download the first page the of NAND
flash to these SRAM. The logic also check the ECC along with the download
process so this is why I am working so hard to turn the ECC logic On.

Possible. With the proper LinuxBIOS support for your M/B chipset, you can
totally replace your traditional BIOS + NOR flash with LinuxBIOS + Linux +
DOC Millennium combination.
