Either way could work, the ramdisk is a particularly good idea. Unless 
the installation is networked, there's not too much need for logfiles in 
the classic server or multiuser environment sort of sense. You could 
probably also just disable to logging daemon by removing it from the 
boot scripts using rc-update (on Gentoo at least, or with another 
distro-specific equivalent). I imagine that logging would simply just 
fail quietly if the partition were read-only... I mean, what would log 
the fact that the logs weren't logging? ;-)
