Thats cool! That means a read-only root right? Im studying read-only
root systems. Im not familiar with devil linux though.

My base is midori linux from transmeta. I adopted the quickinit and spawn
idea from them including the use of pdksh. The busybox also is split into a
root and usr halves. I have just started finishing the bootstrap of my
development base .

BIOS boot is very interesting!

Thats a cool name even without the 'e'.
