Will the Puppy Linux live CD boot on 64 MB? Even Barry's version
(wary) is around 80 MB, and the whole thing needs to load in RAM
right? I suppose if you had formatted a swap partition ahead of time,
or copied the files off the CD directly onto the harddrive for a
frugal install, there would be no issue. Is there a boot option
needed to only load essential files instead of the entire thing?
