Subjectloop filesystem as root partition
Date
Hi,

I saw this question discussed on the archives over a year ago... I guess
it's safe to ask again :-)

Is there any work being done, or is it practical at all, to
use a loopback device for root? I'm thinking of making it easier
to run Linux part-time on Windows machines; we create an ext2
filesystem on the FAT/VFAT system, even make it contiguous, then
use that as root.

Thanks in advance.
