I can't believe how 2.6 kernels are bigger than 2.4 kernels under similar compilation options! Maybe it's time to give tiny-linux a try.

I will also see if compiling kernels with GCC 3.4 makes a difference due to the new -funit-at-a-time option. Debian's sarge "official" compiler seems to be GCC 3.3.

This machine is desperately in need of a memory upgrade, but it seems that not even Crucial has it available anymore. :-(
