Just mount the ramdisks onto those directories in your init scripts(/etc/init.d/bootmisc.sh is where we do it) As for sizes, the default 4M ramdisks seem to work just fine. Linux doesn't appear to allocate the ram until it's allocated on the disk, so the three ramdisks don't suck up more than 100k of ram in our nominal booted state. - Nick Lopez firstname.lastname@example.org =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: email@example.com To get help about this list, send a mail with 'help' as the only string in it's body to firstname.lastname@example.org.
