OK. I saw that, but the documentation that I read had lead me to believe
that SELF was nothing more than a collection of small example rootfses.
I'll go back and read about it again.

I believe what your looking for is the SELF package in ELDK, install,
edit to taste and install.

Simple Embedded Linux Filesystem (SELF)

Its not obvious, I missed for a long time then once I found it and
realized what it was I couldn't work out why it wasn't obvious.... :-)
