    bootable (or harddrive resident) programming interpreter


    is there a stripped-down no-nada-nothing version of linux that only loads command interpreters? I have a program that I want to run in the core of linux, but have this be the only program that loads, and have it load automatically. Does anyone know where I should start?

    (I have a small project that I am planning on tinkering with, any help for the linux n00b would be great)

    When you boot up your box, instead of typing enter at whatever boot screen you get, type in:
    Code:
    init=/usr/bin/program
    replacing /usr/bin/program with the path to your desired program.
