A few minor points

xiafs might be a better choice for a long-names filesystem on a floppy. Or
minix with 30-character names. ext2 is rather wasteful, and (as is often true
with high-performance filesystems) gets worse performance in very limited
spaces... not that you would notice, since the hardware is slower yet.
