I once tried to get this working. It caused endless trouble - the
usual version hassles of binary-only drivers of course, and strange
interoperations with other BIOS extensions. Its pure presence made
eg LILO fail mysteriously.
The documentation is close to useless, and when I asked an Msys
person at an embedded systems related workshop once, I got told
big piles of BS.
So I've given up on this crap.

I'd be more than happy to spend a few bucks more for an IDE
compatible flash disk.
