    It is possible to do it I'm sure but it would require a lot more work. I think modules such as squashfs or ovlfs would need to be built into the kernel as well as USB into the initrd.

    Why are you working on Red Hat 9? It is very old and doesn't support nearly as much hardware as a newer distro so it would only be useful on old machines. Also you are missing out on things like udev and hotplug which make life a lot easier, nowhere moreso than on a livecd.
