I code for fun and a little for work. I've been coding as a hobby for more than 20 years. Occasionally my graduate studies in computer science require me to write something too, but that barely counts -- the code is usually quite contrived and assignment specific.

comment Linux that restores itself on each reboot
The computers we're using don't actually have CD drives. I think Knoppix main benefit is the boot cycle. I'm not sure it helps with mounting a squashfs or anything else.

Sirex, that might be a good head start. I like it. Chris S, you're probably right. There's probably no good reason to leave / writable or even have a /var depending on how much stuff I can strip out.

Awesome. I definitely need to locate a dd-wrt and try that.

Actually, the enclosures I have already do esata. I think I'll order an esata controller for the rig. You've convinced me.

comment Linux raid with a flaky usb drives (bus?)
Yes. I need for these to be external. I agree that USB is a terrible way to do this and I'm seeing the effects of that. What I'm looking for is a way to make it work anyway. This is not mission critical hardware so if the array goes read-only, it really doesn't matter. But ruining the drives isn't acceptable either.

I use the uuid, never the drive letters. My point was only that the drives disappear from the array and come back as spares. When they do this, they sometimes switch letters, but my mdadm.conf in no way cares about the /dev/ path as it uses the ... actually the serial of the drive rather than the uuid.
