There is also an option "Check to optionally set copy2fs.flg if using outside initrd apps". This option creates the copy2fs.flg which will cause the extensions to be copied to memory at bootup which will

There are two flags that can be set in your tce folder:

* copy2fs.lst - a list of extensions to be installed to the root file system in ram
* copy2fs.flg - causes all extensions to be installed to the root file system in ram

both can be set from the apps gui - apps/installation options

Hi, mocore!

   Are you asking about  boot option acting like copy2fs.flg? To set it manually during boot process from the boot menu?
I can agree with you, such an option will be sometimes usefull. But as i can see in "/etc/init.d/tc-install", "/usr/bin/tce-setup" and "/usr/bin/tce-load" there are no such option now.
   You can modify scripts and make custom boot option, and then reassemble rootfs.gz. Working with rootfs.gz is wonderfully described in the wonderfull Corebook (really great one!). If I am not mistaken, in the TinyCore Wiki there were something about custom bootcodes.
   Frankly speaking, such modification will be interesting for me too, so if you will have some results, share them please. Or maybe i will be able to help you.
Wish you success!

About custom bootcodes there is the chapter in Corebook. Great one!
