And /newroot? Lets clarify: 1) /mnt/livecd will be your zisofs image/whater 2) /mnt/cdrom will be the cdrom itself ? So basically, the looback stuff just need to worry about /mnt/livecd, and both for the non-critical unmount stuff? Also, is /newroot now totally not used anymore? And why does /mnt/cdrom need to be mounted - i thought / was in there? I guess a quick explanation on all the types used (zisofs, etc) and what they mount for what will be great ...

Hmm, not sure - that is why I asked for comments from others. I guess the truth will still hold - the conf files tested for should not be there if the user did not setup it ... Thanks, -- Martin Schlemmer Gentoo Linux Developer, Desktop/System Team Developer Cape Town, South Africa
