Marius is correct - both LILO and patched GRUB can make the DOC Millennium 
bootable.  8MB is more than enough space for a small system.

I used a package called "Peewee Linux" (GPL-license) to set up my DOC Mil.  
It currently uses 2.2 kernels, but it is possible to use a custom kernel -- 
in my case, a 2.4.18 with the MTD drivers.
