Hi All,

I am looking to use an AMD flash chip on my pc104 card
to store some non-volatile data, the chip is a 2MB part but,
the BIOS is in the first 128KB (do not want to overwrite).

After setting up the kernel with MDT I get
cat /proc/mtd
dev:    size   erasesize  name
mtd0: 00200000 00010000 "Physically mapped flash"

ok but I only need the second 1MB - is there some way to either
prevent the first meg being mapped/used ?

also I'm looking to use jffs as the file system - maybe I can partion it
to only use the second meg ???

Any help greatly appreciated,
