Linux CD-ROM Game System

This page has been rewritten for the web from a manuscript of
TECH Linux Vol. 2

You can play a game with just a bootable CD-ROM.
You don't need any hard drive.
Like a consumer game console, it boots with only a CD-ROM
and provides you with a Linux SDL(Simple DirectMedia Layer)game
without logging in.
I explain how to make such a CD-ROM bootable game system.
- Late Breaking News:
Recent Linux distribution's /sbin/mkinitrd uses
/sbin/sash (or /sbin/nash) as a standalone
shell instead of /bin/ash.static. This causes a problem.
/sbin/sash has a built-in echo command but it requires to type as
"-echo" instead of just "echo"
and it cannot work with redirect.
So, you must copy /bin/ash.static into initrd-game.img
