a small, but brief note:

IS there not a very very big problem with having the kernel in ram: when

joining two files up into ram: is no problem (6 lines of code max.) but
doesnt ram: just get completely trashed when the bootstrap loads up the
kernel (and thus corrupting the kernel image?)

i thought this was the case and people have to have the installer and
kernel on media, rather than in volatile ram:
