It should be Flash Rom?

That's very interesting.  Can you let me know how to build such small kernel
and initrd?

No, I have a 1 Mbyte flash on the board. I put linuxbios in the top 64K, 
and a kernel and initrd in the bottom (1MB-64K). The kernel and initrd are 
munged together with mkelfimage. Voila ... kernel boots in seconds.
