Hi all, again

I've been thinking:

How should I add this stuff to the Parted docs?

We need to invent some new terminology:
 * booting from boot floppies, or from an initrd on a hard disk
has something in common.  What's a good collective term?
"External boot"?  "Parted ramdisk session"?  Other ideas?

So, I can say things like:

        "if you want to resize your root partition, you need to
        use a Parted ramdisk session... see section X"

Then, in section X:

        "There are two ways you can start a Parted ramdisk session:
                * by boot disks (section X.1)
                * by installing on your hard disk's bootloader (section X.2)"

It seems really hard to explain this without confusing everyone!

Also, partboot and partroot are really stupid names.  Any better ideas?
kernel-boot and parted-initrd?  parted-fs?
