Excellent. How many of the other distributions do you think can easily be
boot-strapped from their FTP archives without requiring a CD in the drive?

Yup, it's related to the fakeinit fiddling that is going on to make the
first-process in a context look-like it has pid=1, whereas the real pid=1
process is in a different context and so you can't access its resources.
`du' will give the correct answer though, it's much like the cosmetic
problems with `lsof'.
