This is an old but good idea. We build a full kernel with all included (mainly
modules) and remove unnescessary modules for the boot-floppies. 
If we do this also for /usr/doc, man and info (or /usr/share ...) and re-install
it after boot-up we will get some more free space. We can use it for language-files.
