Using JFFS2 as root FS on CF

I'm going fishing.

I have a 16MB compact flash card divided into two partitions, /dev/hda1
and /dev/hda2. I formatted hda1 with ext2 to serve as /boot. hda2
contains a JFFS2 image and will be / ... once I get it to mount.

I've got jffs2, mtdblock and blkmtd compiled into the kernel.

Does someone have a recipe for booting a kernel (2.4.13 or 2.4.16) with
this type of setup and having it mount the jffs2 fs as /?
