Yes. I provided a "mixed" file-system: the root on RAM, and remaining
on a big file on the CD-ROM, mounted using the so called "loop" feature
in the kernel. I cannot be totally sure if some muLinux program try
to write anycase on this read-only part of the file-system, because
I didn't intensively tested. If you notice some strange error, this
means some program try to write outside of ramdisk. Let me know.
