Absolutely.  As said, console-only.  I've installed 0.93, run it,
upgraded to 1.1 and run it in 4M.  Standard 16M of swap, though I've
never filled that.  As of not long ago, Bruce's installation testbed was
a 386 with 4M, and he repeatedly tweaked the install to deal with
possible issues people encountered on 4M machines.
