There aren't such restrictions, although I've read that a few programs
required to run on the internal store, but they are usually the exception.
Obviously, other packages will work better if they reside on you internal
store, like a font package or a custom sound. Check the FAQ at
<> as I think that it sometimes suggests to
install such and such packages on the internal store.

brain dump n.: [common] The act of telling someone everything one knows
about a particular topic or project. Typically used when someone is going to
let a new party maintain a piece of code. Conceptually analogous to an
operating system core dump in that it saves a lot of useful state before an
exit. "You'll have to give me a brain dump on FOOBAR before you start your
new job at HackerCorp." See core dump (sense 4). At Sun, this is also known
as `TOI' (transfer of information).
