Yes, it's more the size of a large cigar butt, but it's one of those. The
capy is 256 MB, and it will contain things that I want under windows
and also things that I want under linux. I realize that X is probably
too big and can live without it. What I really want are the gnu utilities.
Thanks to you both for replying. This project sounds doable with a pleasant
amount of work.
