CF for later reboots. The OS is basically compiled and a directory
tree is configured to look like the structure used to make a Hard
Drive operate. That is then converted into an image file that is saved
to the CF along with other utilities that will boot , configure the
RAM, copy the image to RAM from the CF, start the image running, then
the CF is unmounted, so that it cannot be accessed unless it is
mounted. This keeps the CF from being used except when needed.
Bear in mind, custom ID files are not used, no PERL, PHP, apache and
other restrictions apply due to memory/CF storage limitations.

writing to the CF. As mentioned above, the OS image is copied from the
CF into RAM and that is what gets run.
