we could gain some stace by dropping suppot for CPUs without an FPU (this is 66kbyte fat!), as Knoppix isn't that usefull on a i386 or i486SX....

But there are more important things to chance before:
-> bigmem support 4GB
-> enforce USB bandwith allocation

also some things should be changed about power management:
-> add modules for ACPI
-> 2 changes on APM: "Allow interrupts during APM BIOS calls" and "Use real mode APM BIOS call to power off" - both to prevent some implementations from failing.
