As discussed last month, need to compile microcore version of tinycore
(12MB distro)

Microcore will run in 4MB with swapspace.

Really need to upgrade the ram to 64MB if at all possible (16MB min
for decent Xwin usage).

What I thought would be interesting to see, would be
installing/configuring grub to use gPXE to

fetch/run the 12MB microcore distro in 32 or 64MB of ram (vs. using
floppy distro)
