I don't disagree.  Even when things work ok, when you first load
unix.o, the rootfs is read-only, resulting in a scarey (to newbies)
error message.

Herbert, is unix.o something you had to take out to get the bzimage
down to the right side?  What do you think of installing that back
into the kernel?
