UnitSizeFactor in nftlmount.c

hi all,

I'm trying to make my doc2000 work for booting...
any idea?

well, in fact, I'm OK in:
nftl_format /dev/mtd0 2097152
(reboot, as all is compiled in kernel, no module)
fdisk /dev/nftla
mkfs -t ext2 /dev/nftla1

it works all right...
but impossible to boot (even with the "lilo-mtd -r /diskonchip").

It seems that when making the fs (mkfs), the firmware is erased.
And when I try to rewrite it, with the DOS util (dformat, given by 
m-sys), it says that I have not enough binary place to put it in.

I'm on 2.4.8, latest mtd-tool from cvs, on a x86/geode SC1200.

any idea would be welcome...
