At first, this sounded cool. But

- I think this can't be supported for all plattfroms on one CD ROM
- You don't want people come around with a CD, turn power on and all your 
data is lost. I'd expect either to tell the system to go on without asking
by a command line switch or after one or two times asking if I'm sure.
