newbie trying to figure out MTD

I have little experience with the internals of Linux,
but I have been tasked with getting FTL to work with
an embedded Linux system.
The setup is as follows:
o Embedded Linux platform
o Ext2 filesystem
o Intel Strataflash
o System can currently boot using a ram disk
My plan of attack was this:
1. Boot target with ram disk.
2. Install the mtd module(s).
3. Create an Ext2 filesystem with
'mkfs -t ext2 /dev/ftl'
or something to that effect.
4. Populate the flash disk with the neccessary
5. Make the ftl device the root device.
Obviously these are *very* high level steps.
Anyways, you might be thinking "This guy doesn't
know what he is talking about." and I am almost
inclined to agree.
Could someone comment on what I am trying to
vs. what I am doing? Or perhaps some general
instructions on how I should use MTD?
I have read the MTD docs and have looked through the
mailing list archives, but a lot of that is more
specific info than I need right now.
My thanks to any one that helps.
