   run:  lilo-mtd  -v -C /doc/etc/lilo.conf -r /doc

   Boot image: /boot/bzImage-doc

   It seemed ok .but above why not /doc/boot?

Because you specified "-r /doc" to lilo, which says to chroot to /doc
before starting to do anything.

In fact, a simple "lilo-doc -r /doc" will do the right thing for you.

   If i remove my harddisk , I still cannot boot from my
   doc . just get  "boot failure " .

That means that the DoC isn't bootable.  Maybe the first partition
isn't "active".
