[nycbug-talk] FreeBSD minimum memory

Yes, but if you have the knowhow to create a special boot cd, you've also got the knowhow to trim the linux compat libs down, they're so bloated because they contain a 'mini distribution' of binaries as well......

Essentially for it to REALLY work all you really need is the binary compat kernel module and some statically (and as such, self contained) compiled linux bins....

Indeed very interesting.
In particular
Linux Binary Compat.    255     127

I had no idea that used so much disk.
Not a big deal for a modern HD, but for anything minimalistic like working 
on doing a special purpose boot CD... 127MB is a lot.
