@Ignacio I imagine that the system being bootstrapped has no OS present to mount on.

comment How can I log when reads to /dev/random block?
Just a suggestion: use /dev/urandom if it exists. Urandom doesn't block.

comment Cron jobs not running
Why are you running these in a subshell? They are already going to run in a subshell. This might be part of the problem. Remove the /bin/bash -l -c ' and the matching end quote, and add `SHELL=/bin/bash' to the top of the crontab.

@Dima, That why you install on a test computer - then once the install is complete, you can make an image of the installed drive.

comment Can thin clients run XP from a flash drive?
@Zypher yeah, that's what the salesmen tell me... I'd still argue that a "thin client" is just software. E.g. I have a small form-factor low power netbook that runs as a server, and yet I run thin client (Terminal Services RDP client) on a powerful desktop system. However I'll conceed that confusion about this is rampant, as people tend to confuse the purpose of the software with the hardware it runs on. I did know what was meant by the question, though, which is why I addressed it.

Can you tell us more about the hardware the the thin-client runs on? Is there specific hardware you need an answer for, or is this a hypothetical?
