LinuxBIOS is actually very small (64KB), it will fit easily on a 256KB 
flash part. However, you must be careful about the size of your part. If 
you have a 256KB flash part, then you need to adjust the ROM_SIZE in 
your Config.lb file accordingly:
option ROM_SIZE=256*1024
If you're on a 512KB flash part, then it should be this:
option ROM_SIZE=512*1024

Also, on a 512KB flash part, you can concatinate a 256KB linuxbios.rom 
twice into another file and burn that instead, so long as the file size 
is 512KB.
