Perfectly. This message, "16 ramdisk", in only related to "rd" module,
the ramdisk support in the kernel. All in muLinux uses RAM, because
the filesystem is in RAM, and programs executable uses RAM. The temporary
disk (/tmp) uses a own ramdisk, with a default size 2048k.
During the Setup/tmp the user has the possibility to change this value.


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
