As far as I recall, the root filesystem image in the slackware
install disks is supposed to be gzipped on the disk. It is unzipped
into a ramdisk device at boot time, and then the ramdisk is mounted
(I don't understand exactly how this happens, like, where does
the code that controlls this process come from when there is no
file system yet?)
