Hi all,

I've been able to build PicoBSD form FreeBSD 4.1.1, setup to boot off CD, 
and have a whole heap of additional bit's a bob's to make the whole thing 
work...  (I've even got a splash screen etc. for my particular application.)

I've basically created my own, picobsd/custcd originally based on 
picobsd/cust...  I doubt very much that we want to do that, but it works 
and I'm semi happy with it.  If anyone is interested I can send a tarball 
of the directory.

I use it to boot off, and restore a set of dump images of machines.  (It 
lets me configure a bunch of same / similar machines really quickly...  A 
bit like "Ghost" for FreeBSD.)  It also lets me use network utils 
(dhcpclient, ping, traceroute, tcpdump, etc.) without having to have a 
dedicated FreeBSD host on hand!
