This is great!  Been looking for this for a while.  Just created a  
couple test images without any issues or surprises.

Does anyone have any suggestions for persisting configuration changes  
to floppy or other media like USB stick?  I don't want to create a new  
image every time a firewall rule changes, and I need changes to  
persist after a reboot.

I'm having a hard time finding information on this subject.  I was  
hoping for something a little more elegant than mounting a floppy via  
fstab and using symlinks to relocate configuration files like  
"/etc/sysconfig/iptables".  I'd like to use a single image for several  
machines.  Each hostname, firewall rules, ip addresses, etc would be  
saved on a floppy that's specific to that machine.
