   The newest DiskOnChip driver in CVS (our driver, not the M-
Systems) should be aware of 64M nand chips. Unfortunatly, NFTL 
may not work with non 8kbytes erase blocks (64M have 16kbytes 
blocks), but I really don't know. I'm a little busy, and I haven't 
checked nftl code yet....
   I would be grateful if you could try the latest CVS code and report 
and success/failures. There is a utility (nandtest) where you can test 
raw access to nand chips without nftl.
   I think there are new drivers on the M-Systems site to handle 64M 
DOC2000s, but probably not for linux.
