I think it sounds useful to determine these requirements. Please take
a look at http://www.debian.org/~aph/boot-floppies/i386/ and correct
that, if you care to, especially section 2.3. In there I say:
You must have at least 4MB of RAM and 20MB of hard disk.
>From your message, this should be 4MB RAM, and 25MB disk?
If you want
to install a reasonable amount of software, including X window system,
and some development programs and libraries, you'll need at least
300MB. For a more or less complete installation, you'll need around
800MB. To install _everything_ available in Debian, you'll probably
need around 2 GB.
Is this reasonable still?
That you have to hand massage stuff is bad. I guess I wouldn't want
to document limits that were predicated on hand-tweaking.
