Version 0.3.1 of freepia

Release Notes: Freepia no longer needs the first partition on the first disk device. It now searches for the config files in each partition and then on the CD drives. If no config files are found, an emergency menu is started. Freepia can now be booted completely from a CD without requiring a complete install. Running from CD will only save the configuration data on the hard disk. CDROM drives now may be autodetected and included into freevo/fstab/mnt. The rootfs was shrunk by around 2MB. hdparm (for DMA tuning) and noflushd (for powerdown on idle) are now used for all IDE hard disks.
