I can get ubuntu downsized to 350MB but its not easy to find the minimal
installation option. Moreover, I had difficulties to install locales
with this minimum install. I shall try again (4th time:) ).
I don't want to put debian on it because I would like to reduce the
number of distros installed all over my boxes.
PS: hope you don't mind CCing to ML
