I'm using Movix a lot, so I got the idea to make something similar for
Firebird database app. Take a look at:

I basically do the same thing, just instead of loading the MPlayer, I
load Firebird db and my application. Of course, I threw out all
usb/firewire/sound/etc. drivers out of it and built the minimal kernel

So, basically you need:
ISOLINUX from syslinux website:
Linux kernel from
Working Firebird instalation

I someone goes deeper into this and gets stuck somewhere I'd be glad to
