I have a Compact Flash, /dev/hda, and I can format the
Flash as ext2 and boot using lilo. How do I create a
CramFS image and make it bootable.

    I'm also trying to use cramfs as a root filesystem. I'm
    wanting to use grub as my bootloader though. Have you had
    any luck with booting a kernel stored on a cramfs filesystem?

    You must have an initrd where you mount cramfs and then do
    a pivot_root
