Thanks, the problem is I don't have cpio on Chrome OS. I am working on
writing a tutorial on how to run Slackware off a usb flash drive and I
though that starting the installer on a 'foreign' distro would make
things easier but obviously it doesn't.

So the other solution is either rsyncing the slackware tree or
unpacking the miniroot-fs and adding the remaining packages while in

Adding the chrome OS kernel and modules+firmware shouldn't be difficult.
