OK, so far I see no answers to your post. That's sad, cause in some way
that would have interested me too :-((
First thing coming to my mind, I think there is an SDB article about
installation on a system with very low memory. Did you check this ?
Unluckily I have no idea how this article was called or which URL it is.
Next idea, maybe peanutlinux could rescue you? I only heared of the name
and don't know how it works, but as far as I remember it ships 'all
inclusive' on a 150MB image available e.g. at, so you can
dl this and burn your install CD - I hope it does include a boot floppy
image which you will need for creating your bootdisk.

Hope that can help for the beginning ....
