:Hear hear. This is the correct attitude to go about things that are in 
:development. Yeah, I know that fdisk and disklabel can seem a bit daunting at 
:first, but once you did it, it's just not that big of a deal.
:In fact, I can predict that once you know how it works, you'll prefer the way 
:it works now ;-)

    And keep in mind that we have a fully working system environment 
    on the CD, so just about anything you develop on your normal harddisk
    booted machine can almost certainly be run from the CD environment too.
