Sorry for the delayed response. Here are some more things you can try:
1. What are the LED's showing. two of them should say b7 (or something like
that). None of them should say FF.
2. Are you watching the serial console? Is it configured?
3. How will you know when your kernel boots?
Also, I rather than clutter up the list re. non mtd/JFFS issues (as your mtd
and jffs seems to be working), I will send you a personal mail to help you

Subject: SC520 CDP - problem with booting from BIOS Flash
I work with AMD SC520 CDP. I use file sc520cdp.c from CVS (written by
Kaiser). It works good when Linux boots from HDD or FDD. I can
into mtd0,... device or work with JFFS placed into mtdblock device.
My root FS (JFFS) is placed into mtdblock0. Now I would like to place
into BIOS-flash (29F040). I followed instructions, written by You. But
have some questions. My actions is :
I use lstart16.asm from AMD site with Your modifications.
BOOTCS - DIP
ROMCS1 - 8MHCS
ROMCS2 - 8MLCS
ns lstart16.abs 7f800
ns zFlashImage 0 (zFlashImage is kernel with assigning root device
After reset I see changing some digits on the LEDs but kernel is not
Why kernel doesn't booting? This kernel boots good ( with root fs into
mtdblock0 ) when I use HDD.
Thanks for any help.
