Am I misreading something in his original email?  370mb should be plenty
for whatever he wants to do, as long as he's not running an ftp site or
web server or something.  I run some very happy systems off of 250 meg
partitions..  Maybe I missed something about partitioning on his system?

I was under the impression that 15 megs was the minimal install binary
stuff, making the min really around 50 megs or something?
