Hi All,

I've spent a week googling with little success in figuring out how to do this:

I've got a pretty comprehensive preseed set up on a 12.04.1 server install off of a USB stick. I need to be able to declare a tmpfs or aufs mount for /var/log/ from the preseed file for the final install.

<Offtopic on why I want /var/log/ as a tmpfs or aufs>
The systems that this installer is for are thin clients with flash storage. The flash memory on these don't have wear-leveling tech so I'm trying to cut down on writes.
</Offtopic...>

I'd like to avoid having to put any custom scripts into the extracted ISO to make it easier in the future to migrate to >12.04.1 releases.

Has anyone ever tried this before?

Thanks all!
