what are you asking? If I am interpreting correctly,
1. There is no limit to how many modules you can put on as long as it small enough to fit on the media of choice.
2. By definition, LiveCD's run in memory.

If you want Slax in your hard drive, use Slackware then.

Yes. Either use the Slax installer (look through the menu, it should be under "system," I believe), or just install Slackware, whichever takes your fancy.

Edit:
What do you mean? If you're going to run it from CD, it HAS to run in your RAM.

Edit edit:
Never mind. You mean, do you have to use the "load2ram" feature? Surely not.

The iso you produce with MySlax should run from the CD just like Knoppix unless you specify "load2ram" in the boot options. And if it automatically loads to ram, you should be able to change that too.

No, it wouldn't. As long as you don't specify "load2ram" as a boot option, Slax will run from the CD.

Please describe for me what it does. Does it pause, midboot, and say "loading to ram, this may take a while?"

A live CD is always going to use your computers ram, there is now way around that... The point of Live CD's are not to load on your HD not RAM... Your computer cannot function without programs loaded in ram... In other words NO there is no way to load an OS without it using RAM...

OK. When running MySlax Creator, when at the Modify Boot Options step, deselect the "copy2ram" option under CD (it's in the upper right-hand corner of the screen). Then finish creating the iso. I'm sorry I referred to it as "load2ram" earlier, that's how Knoppix refers to the option, and I've been using it a lot lately.

Edit:
I finally noticed you indicating that it's doing this even though you haven't selected the option. Sorry to be so dense. What are you using for your source? What version of MySlaxCreator are you using? If it's not 1.3.0, upgrade and try it again.
