I guess you can program either lilo or Grub into DiskOnChip to boot off
it, but not both.
Similarly, you can load either BIOS TrueFFS drivers and the binary-only
O/S abstraction layer from http://www.m-sys.com/ or the open source MTD
drivers for DiskOnChip from http://linux-mtd.infradead.org/.
I can not recollect the installation procedure for lilo. You may find
them at M-Sys web site. The Grub installation procedure was posted last
month in this list. There was an error in it: you have to reload the NFTL
module or reboot if it's compiled in after running nftl_format.
