Dear David,

Thanks for your response.

I sent it correctly after typing the full mail. I think this is
some problem in rediff mails itself.
Anyway these are the my requirements:

1) My application is coming around 8 MB. So need a file system
about 12 MB to which i should be able to mount the root of the
Linux kernel.

2) I need read-only file system.

3) Is it possible to create multiple ram disks of multiple file
systems like CRAMFS, RAMDISK for a single kernel?

Thanks in advance,
