It's actually not that far off, IMO, if you make the pack with the
bootblocks, kernel, and system executables physically read-only (as in,
a jumper or a physical switch or some such that cannot be affected by
software). It requires very little tweaking to run this way under
NetBSD. (I once tried, though it was for sharing root partitions among
disklesses rather than for security. I also tried it with SunOS 4.1.x;
NetBSD makes it a hell of a lot easier than SunOS does, lemme tell ya.)
