If you get it to work with the zip disk mounted readonly, so that it
would also work from a CDrom, then its worth the effort.

Currently when I need a rescue system for some reason, I install base
to the swap partition and work from that. Its great, but nowadays I
tend to not have a swap partition, so that option is not allways
possible. :)

If you keep going with your ideas, please include raid support (mdrun, 
mdadd and kernel modules).

May the Source be with you.
