I believe this *will* fit on i386 1.44 root.bin and the 2.88 version.
Much of the stuff is text and should compress pretty well. Just bump
up the image sizes in the top-level makefile.
You just have to test it and see if it works.
This would only apply to idepci and compact flavors, right? Are you
going to change the top-level Makefile and/or config so that it can
automatically turn on/off the language chooser for the two flavors?
Do you need help with that?
For other arches, again, it probably should fit assuming they have
library reduction working; if not, they are out of luck. Oh well to
