I think the HOWTO is good for your target.
I don't see the problem.
create a partition on the DOC, make an ext2 fs on it.
You need to build your root file system on the DOC
create a /etc/lilo.conf (search the net for mtd-lilo - you'll find a
mtd-lilo.conf or something else)
and use mtd-lilo -r /mnt/nftla1 (or wherever you mount /dev/nftla1) to let
the DOC boot
what M-Systems firmware do you have on it?
if the kernel assumes a mtd device that you don't have - where is it than?
