See Jason's stuff in the boot/ directory of my CVS tree. I haven't looked
at it. Other people are booting off flash quite happily.

Yes. But why are you using FTL? It's patented and you're not permitted to
use it on non-PCMCIA devices. You should probably be using JFFS instead.
(You'd need to get your bootloader to understand JFFS, too, but keep an eye
on handhelds.org where that task is fairly high up on the TODO list.)

I don't, on a PC.
