Hmm... It's strange, my DoC has 24MiB (I have one DoC on board on
address 0xe8000).
3 flash chips found. Total DiskOnChip size: 24 MiB
I'm using this DoC, that's right.

But as I know I have 1 MiB flash integrated on board too.
The flash is Intel 28F800-B5 Flash (from board guide).
I can use it with (ms)dos.
Can I use it with linux ? How I do it ? Or I can't ?
