... followed by a litany of "argh, block not erased" type messages in
the syslog. Mount then returns. Then, I try to copy some files into the
mounted jffs2 filesystem ... "cp" causes an oops and the interrupt
handler gets killed.

Am I correct in assuming that I can make partitions with fdisk, then
# dd if=flash.jffs2 of=/dev/hde1
# modprobe blkmtd device=/dev/hde1
# mount -t jffs2 /dev/mtdblock0 /mnt/flash
What would this look like in lilo and /etc/fstab on the device that will
hopefully be booting from the jffs2 image?

Maybe the updates won't oops... :)
Do you use mtdram to create jffs2 filesystems? Or some other method?
