I am trying to understand about the file system of bootable system on CD. For CDs which can only be written once, how exactly does system boot?
Aren't there any configuration parameters which need to be changed/added upon every boot? Or are there not folders like
tmp which contains the temporary data (although it vanishes away after every boot).
In simpler terms, how does CD-Read-only is able to boot ?
Am I missing something here ?
