Thanks for all the info. Will try it out tomorrow...

Hmm. I will keep that in mind...
My ramfiles were just this simple stuff...
#mount the ramfs
mount -t ramfs ramfs /ramfiles
#make dirs in ramfs
#cp tarballs to ramfiles
cp /var.tar.gz /ramfiles
cp /home.tar.gz /ramfiles
cp /root.tar.gz /ramfiles
cp /ALFS/profiles.tar.gz /ramfiles
cp /etc/X11.tar.gz /ramfiles
cp /etc/sysconfig.tar.gz /ramfiles
cp /etc/ssh.tar.gz /ramfiles
#untar tarballs which also makes dirs
tar -zxvf var.tar.gz
tar -zxvf home.tar.gz
tar -zxvf root.tar.gz
tar -zxvf profiles.tar.gz
tar -zxvf X11.tar.gz
tar -zxvf sysconfig.tar.gz
tar -zxvf ssh.tar.gz
#now remove stuff to free up ram
Sure it can be tons better, but it works for what
I wanted atm. :) ramfs and devfs seem to work

Would love to see a Python backend :) Maybe I'll learn something...
