Oh, cool!

I'm currently doing this very naively; I made a directory, unpacked base
into it, and I'm going around deleting and tweaking files.  My problem
right now is that the box occasionally crashes while booting - I *think*
this is just that I'm using crappy cheap CF cards, and they seem to become
corrupted if you don't reformat them and copy everything over fresh
occasionally.  !?@!#.  I hate cheap parts.
