Or you can go the opposite direction. I have been using an sst49lf016c
2MB flash in a motherboard with an AMD8111 as the southbridge. Then I
used the kboot project to build a kernel and initrd that fits and can
kexec from ide, usb, or network.

yeah, but it needs to be under (512-32)K. Plus, you need to stuff an 
initrd in there for basic utilities.

That's been harder.
