Why would we need more than 4MB of space? The existing installer fits in
1MB; and if you're doing an install on a low memory machine, you're probably
not going to be too worried about not getting a graphical installer, or a
3D tetris game to play, or whatever. No?

If you've got a CD, and you can use a small, live, ro fs on it, then
you've probably got enough room to include enough udebs already unpacked
that you don't need to install anymore.

Cheers,
