Indeed. Glen Gray had a little Linux distro that works 99% fine with a
read only / - OK, there is some funny stuff, like /dev/log needing to be
in /var (which is a ramdisk), but that's about it.
BTW Kevin - you always thought it was funny that Irish people measured
distances in Kilometres, and speeds in MPH - as off June, all speed signs
have to be in KPH...something that'll really confuse people...
