I didn't give Linux the option of knowing that it wasn't a harddisk. I
think the relevant code is in io.c.

But you could also simply copy the minimal files to the CF and install it
from itself.

I doubt redhat can be shrunk that far. I started with Slackware and
basically rolled my own, quite a few revisions ago. I barely touch the
PC110 now, since I have (among others) a C1 PictureBook, so I haven't
worried about it in a long time.
