    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.
