It'd be nice to have PCMCIA support in the ISO kernel. I have a Sony
Picturebook with no integrated cdrom or floppy drive. I have PCMCIA cdrom
drive, but it cannot find the cdrom after the initial "load modules/choose
root device" menu. Including PCMCIA cdrom support would fix this.
Other than that, there is still the /mnt/root/mnt/root problem.
Could we get brief overview of how the installation iso is created?
