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]
