About the GoblinX
GoblinX is a Live-CD that is based on the excellent Slackware distribution. It is directed towards those users who appreciate quality applications and a workspace that is both practical and beautiful. GoblinX contains some of the most often used and praised applications for Linux. GoblinX is a completely operational Linux system contained on one CD-ROM and it runs from any CD-ROM drive, without requering the installation.
Linux Live is a set of shell scripts which allows you to create own LiveCD from every Linux distribution. Just install your favourite distro, remove all unnecessary files (for example man pages and all other files which are not important for you) and then download and run these scripts... Linux Live created by Tomas Matejicek (c) 2002-2005
It boots by using initrd, then it mounts the whole packed filesystem from the CD, after that it inserts unionFS modules into kernel to emulate "pseudo-writing" to the CD, it links all directories together in /mnt (tmpfs) and finaly /mnt is chrooted and ramdisk is freed. Your distro won't even notice that there's something behind.
