Anybody have a good idea in the long term about how to solve the DoC mess.

I really like this sis730 mainboard with DoC. It's neat to come up in
busybox and have all the power of linux available even if the disk is not
yet loaded with linux. But that won't work with 735 due to more complex
chipset setup. So we have to use FLASH. Then we can't have the nice
startup with the kernel etc. that we get with DoC.

We need big flash. But we can't just put big flash in the IDE slot -- then
we can't have a disk drive!

Are we really stuck with 256K forever? is there some plugin that gives us
