There is a Small-Memory-Mini-Howto. It gives some tips about how to save space.

First try the compact kernel flavor of whatever version you want to run (I'd 
use the stable 2.2.19-compact). Then I recommend to compile your own kernel 
(perhaps on a faster machine), with only the modules you really need.

Why do you do masquerading? Are you using the laptop as a server??
