I was thinking of including an actual symlink on the CD.
However, I just realized that ISO-9660 doesn't support symlinks without
Rock Ridge extensions (and maybe it doesn't even support them *with* RR
extensions, I'm not sure). Then again, straight ISO-9660 doesn't
support lowercase filenames, either, or ones longer than 14 characters.
Well, wait a minute -- is that even how this boot CD works? (I haven't
yet tried it.) Or is there an ext3 FS-in-a-file somewhere?
