I do this for my parents in their house. But, I use Coyote Linux for 
this purpose. Threw out the harddrive (if somebody breaks in, there's 
no harddrive to put tools on, and the ramdisk isn't too big), booting 
from floppy. http://www.coyotelinux.com/ is the web site. It has a 2.2 
kernel, though. 

If you want a 2.4 kernel and something that is more based on Debian, 
then check out FloppyFW: http://www.zelow.no/floppyfw/
But I couldn't that configured for my setup. A friend of mine has 80 
machines behind a 133 MHz Pentium box...
