Unhappy Problem mounting root cramfs on s3c2410 board

Hi My name is Swapnil,
I'm trying to port linux to Samsung s3c2410 based board.

The board has 32MB of RAM, and 32MB of samsung NAND flash.
It has vivi bootloader and is able to boot the cross compiled kernel
(zImage). I have a cramfs. pls advice how to mount it.
I have enabled support for cramfs in the kernel configuration.

Kernel = linux- (no patches added)
cross compiler = gcc-4.0.3 (arm)

The following is the kernel debug message on serial port.


VIVI version 0.1.4 (sonu@sonu-desktop) (gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (release)) #0.1.4 Mon Feb 25 12:53:08 HKT 2008

Modified by sonu PTID ver3
MMU table base address = 0x31DFC000
Succeed memory mapping.
NAND device: Manufacture ID: 0xec, Chip ID: 0x75 (Samsung KM29U256T)
Found saved vivi parameters.
Press Return to start the LINUX now, any other key for vivi
Copy linux kernel from 0x00030000 to 0x30008000, size = 0x00200000 ... done
zImage magic = 0x016f2818
Setup linux parameters at 0x30000100
linux command line is: "console=ttySAC2 root=/dev/mtdblock3"
NOW, Booting Linux......
