Well, my custom kernel is around 1200KB compressed (and about 100KB free
on the floppy) and it has many things hardcoded that could be offloaded
to an initramdisk, if I wanted to get my hands dirty.

So, I do think that it would be possible to get it smaller. Want to see
my .config? I just posted it to linux-kernel in a reply to Andrew
