As a question to the group, do there exist *any* ongoing-current
distributions whose install lets you customize for small targets such as
a 48MB flash or even the 16MB flash of a DIMM-PC? (By current I mean
recent kernel, libc, and security fixes, and by ongoing-current I mean
actively maintained in that state.)
