The small one is a stripped binary. It should make no difference.

Slot interrupts are a potential problem (when the kernel is booted using 
Penguin) if MacOS has loaded drivers for those cards. You can usually 
avoid this by booting with extensions off.

For the IIfx and Q900/950, you need to put serial ports in "compatible" 

These problems and workarounds are discussed here,
