Extremely cool!

So, for flashing, when my NAND looks like this:
 neo:~# cat /proc/mtd
dev:    size   erasesize  name
mtd0: 00200000 00010000 "physmap-flash.0"
mtd1: 00040000 00020000 "qi"
mtd2: 00040000 00020000 "depr-ub-env"
mtd3: 00800000 00020000 "kernel"
mtd4: 000a0000 00020000 "depr"
mtd5: 00040000 00020000 "identity-ext2"
mtd6: 0f6a0000 00020000 "rootfs"

I should flash the bootloader to the partition named "qi" right? Like:
dfu-util -a qi -R -D qi-s3c2442-bootmenu-0.1.udfu
and the kernel like so: dfu-util -a kernel -R -D
Is this correct?

It would be nice if the various distros out there could place their

Seems QtMoko is already doing this:
neo:~# ls -l /boot
total 1818
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1852364 Oct  2 21:28 uImage-GTA02.bin

You can optionally also place a logo in /boot/bootlogo.png which

Cool. :)
