Glad to see there's finally a mailing list, now I can bug everyone and
not just Daniel personally... ;)

Hmm, I recall asking if rc3 could have gcc and the kernel source 
available from the boot cd - I see the kernel source code is in the
packages directory, but I think there may have been a
mis-communication... I actually meant that gcc be executable from
boot.img so that a kernel can be compiled directly from the boot cd
(onto ramfs presumably, unless you mount anything else) without having
to install anything to a hard disk - I for one would find this very
useful, and I'm surprised I haven't seen any other distros do this.
Comments please
