Booting from the flash

It appears that nftl_format deletes M-Systems' firmware. I
remember that David wrote something about fixing that.
doc_loadbios seems to destroy the partition entirely. Neither M-
Systems' drivers nor MTD drivers can recognize anything on the
flash after doc_loadbios.
Is there a way to boot from a DOC2000 flash using MTD drivers?
[BTW: I was only successful at creating a 2.3 kernel with MTD
drivers. 2.2 kernels don't seem to work. I think I have an idea what
could be wrong, and I'll try to test it soon]
