First message here. I read through the 4.0 book, and although it makes
sense, I would like to know how I can go through and build a
linux-from-scratch and make it portable. What I really want to do is build
it, and have it be stand alone on a machine with a distro.
I have heard many times that you could build a linux kernel, put it on a
floppy so it boots, then take the floppy out so that if the machine was
rebooted, you could not get into the system...(I would like to build a
ip-chain machine booting just from a floppy for security). I really don't
know if that was a rumour or if it is possible.
Any help would be greatly appreciated before I go forward and build a
linux-from-scratch system, that I have to run with another distribution on
the same machine....it kind of defeats the purpose of building a machine
from scratch in the first place.
