Re: 386-4 Meg install question
as far as I know, Debian should work with 4MB, but you need at least 12MB
for installation (maybe you can borrow it somewhere?). You can save loads
of memory with shutting down/removing everything that you do not need and
compile the kernel as small as possible. Today I discovered that you can
disable the virtual consoles, so you save some mem. Maintenance must be
done from another host. Also building in a big swap would help.
