[j-nsp] PCMCIA flash upgrade/config

Could someone shed a bit of light on how the PCMCIA flashes work with 
Juniper M/T-series?  The documentation is, well.., less than existant 

What we'd like to do is have a PCMCIA flash including the latest image 
and configuration, which could be slapped in a new (or RMA'd) RE, and 
when the RE would boot up, it would upgrade the software to that on 
the flash when it boots up, and would copy the configuration from the 
flash as well.

I get the impression from various documents that this would be 
possible, but nowhere it seems to be said 1) if this is really 
possible, and 2) how it would be done.

Or, if that's not possible, we could live with just simply booting 
directly from the flash with the config on the flash.

Any hints?
