Bootable OS

So one of the issues is that (at least for Solaris atm) you can't really boot off of RAID without a lot of effort... So, what if we use something like this to boot off of?

  1. Swap space - Because ZFS caches data in kernel addressable memory, the kernel sizes will likely be larger than with other file systems. Configure additional disk-based swap to account for this difference. You can use the size of physical memory as an upper bound to the extra amount of swap space that might be required. Do not use slices on the same disk for both swap space and ZFS file systems. Keep the swap areas separate from the ZFS file systems.
    So these devices could be good for swap space too...
