How does the "toram" option change when a person remasters DSL? DSL-N is simply like a DSL remaster, right?
What worries me is that I've done a toram, and It said about 14MB of RAM were being used. How's that work again? If the distro is 50+ MB, and it loads completely into RAM, how is it compressing? What happened to the ~50MB that was previously there?
Does it recognize the hardware and toss what isn't needed? If I remember right, that was one of the /dev problems from back in the day: Tons of drivers that took up space, but not all were needed.
So, is that what DSL is doing? Tossing away what it doesn't need after the toram install, thus decreasing the final amount the OS needs in order to be used while in RAM?
