Installation fails on Toshiba 410CDT

I have this rather ancient laptop that I've been attempting to install
Sarge on. Since this laptop has 16MB of ram, it's not going so good as
the installer requires more than 20MB.

Of course the installer quits when loading a udev module from the CD, so
I assume it's probably running out of memory. This laptop is incapable
of booting from the CD on it's own.

Any ideas on how to install Debian on this laptop ? The installer
mentions using some other methods, but since this baby isn't networked,
I can't do a netinstall. :(
