The answer to that question is entirely dependent on the bootloader you
use. But at the moment, I think there are no bootloaders which support this.
There are patches available for Compaq bootldr used on the iPAQ, which make
it capable of loading a kernel from a JFFSv1 filesystem. But nobody's yet
done JFFS2, AFAIK.
We're intending to add this support to RedBoot some time in the near
