After having successfully installed sarge RC1 on Q800, Q660AV and an
earlier TC on Q840AV, I'm having trouble installing the same RC1 on
Quadra 700. The box has 20M of RAM only. The HDD is the same 3.2G that I
used successfully in Q800 and Q600AV.

I'm pretty sure the problem is the RAM. We haven't really spent a bunch
of time on lowmem installations yet, so I think the minimum is 24 or so.
At least, I think someone got it installed in 24.

Yes, that was me, with a Quadra650. I could get it installed it I had partitioned and "mke2fs"ed the target-disk first. This is because the ramdisk back than (d-i beta2 or beta3) was 20 Mb and the partitioner wouldn't start in the memory that was left. Maybe with a 13 Mb ramdisk it'll work. I will try and take a day to test d-i RC1 again with the 13 Mb ramdisk. Yes, you read that correct: I need to take a day for that, it was that slow, but maybe that's gotten better and faster when the ramdisk only takes 13 Mb.

HTH, Erik.
