rootfs partition size is not 512MB.
Where do you store MLO, u-boot.bin and uImage ?

I have a overo firestorm board with 512 MB NAND with following layout

> cat /proc/mtd

dev:    size   erasesize  name
mtd0: 00080000 00020000 "xloader"
mtd1: 001c0000 00020000 "uboot"
mtd2: 00040000 00020000 "uboot environment"
mtd3: 00400000 00020000 "linux"
mtd4: 1f980000 00020000 "rootfs"

I wanted to create new partition by deleting the rootfs 512 MB one.
How do i go about it? I am not finding any instructions on doing it. Plz
specify if there are any permanent risks involved to the hardware.

Another doubt is that i am getting an additional partition called mtd5 with
name rootfs listed with > cat /proc/mtd when i issue it after booting from
NAND flashed using the a ubi file i had generated using mkfs.ubifs and
ubinize commands.
