I've got 4.5-PRE pico on a floppy that boots on a 486/66, but it's
*really* tight (<10k available).  If I login to the box remotely and try
to run anything, it kills the login process so it's pretty useless.

With another 4-8MB of memory, the box would actually work pretty well as
a dedicated wireless firewall/router/snooper.  For now, it works pretty
good as a wireless router/simple packet filter. :)
