Thanks for your work!
CRUX-2.5-test2 seems to work here... even after doing strange
thiongs like this:

I am looking for a way to install CRUX from an already
booted foreign linux system without the necessity to boot
from the CRUX CD.

Sometimes I cannot access the console (hosted machine), there
is no CDROM-drive (netbook) and no quick way to boot from
a CRUX USB without building one manually.

Currently, I mount the .iso, unsquashfs crux.squashfs, copy /cdrom/crux
to the unpacked squashfs, chroot into it and run setup from there.
Well, everything seems to work fine... the only thing which I need
to install manually is unsquashfs from squashfs-tools.

1) Does it make sense to include unsquashfs with the CRUX CD?

2) Is there a simpler way to achieve above installation
method aside of building my own un-iso/squashfsed CRUX?
