You need FreeBSD to build the floppy and/or customize it for your
environment.   PicoBSD is just a name for "FreeBSD on a floppy."  You need
a FreeBSD PC in order to compile the programs that you're going to put on
that floppy.

After the floppy has been built, everything runs from the floppy.

Then why did you say you were interested in my solution?

I spent a few hours packaging that tarball up, creating the web page, etc,
so that you could see what I was doing, etc, all because you were
interested in my solution...

If you've decided that you're going to use Trinux, then that's your best
bet.   I don't know enough about how Trinux works to help you.
