Er, that code is older than the 20010807 snapshot you said you were using. 
I meant the latest code from my CVS. I'm slightly concerned that the older 
code works when the newer code doesn't - it's supposed to work the other 
way round. Can you check the latest code and make sure it works there too?

It doesn't work perfectly yet, although it shouldn't take much to fix it.
To make it fit, you have to use nftl_format to make the NFTL start further 
in to the device.
