The configuration file partition, which can be mounted under the <filename>/cfg</filename> directory at run time.
These partitions are normally mounted read-only.
The <filename>/etc</filename> and <filename>/var</filename> directories are <citerefentry><refentrytitle>md</refentrytitle><manvolnum>4</manvolnum></citerefentry> (malloc) disks.
The configuration file partition persists under the <filename>/cfg</filename> directory. It contains files for <filename>/etc</filename> directory and is briefly mounted read-only right after the system boot, therefore it is required to copy modified files from <filename>/etc</filename> back to the <filename>/cfg</filename> directory if changes are expected to persist after the system restarts.

The partition containing <filename>/cfg</filename> should be mounted only at boot time and while overriding the configuration files.
Keeping <filename>/cfg</filename> mounted at all times is not a good idea, especially if the <application>NanoBSD</application> system runs off a mass storage medium that may be adversely affected by a large number of writes to the partition (like when the filesystem syncer flushes data to the system disks).
Building a NanoBSD Image
A <application>NanoBSD</application> image is built using a simple <filename>nanobsd.sh</filename> shell script, which can be found in the <filename><replaceable>/usr</replaceable>/src/tools/tools/nanobsd</filename> directory. This script creates an image, which can be copied on the storage medium using the <citerefentry><refentrytitle>dd</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry> utility.
The necessary commands to build a <application>NanoBSD</application> image are:
