Kernel 2.6 run from Ramdisk
i've searched the net for a few hours and even though i gathered some useful informations i'm still completely lost and don't know where to begin.
Well, i bought 8GB of Ram for my main PC and 4GB of Ram for my Laptop.
The plan is to install Linux to the harddrive, boot, create a Ramdisk, copy Linux to Ramdisk*, run it from there.
*if possible i'd like to be asked on bootup which 'version' i want to run, then a script copies the needed files to the harddrive, e.g. i can have a Web-Dev Bootscript and all my web-dev stuff (Apache, Postgres..) is copied to the disk and run, or i can have a Office bootscript for school, where i have openoffice and so on...
so, well, i've figured out what i will need to use:
-x64 (since it's 4GB / 8GB of memory)
i've already tested DSL, i ran it from Ramdisk, it's very fast and i like it, but, i'd like a 2.6 Kernel...
I've tested puppy as well; but it is not available in x64
well, what i'd like to know:
-is there already something like what i want
-how can it be done?
-Where do i have to change something?
-With which distribution should i start.. i believe it should probably not be something to big and overloaded since i'd need to dig in quite deep and the more things there are the more complicated things get...
and of course any further hints!
thank you very much for your help!
