"slitaz-loram-cdrom and Tiny Memory Systems
The boot command line is usually:
boot: slitaz args...
Slitaz boots on a 9MB RAM system with the boot command:
boot: loram single root=/dev/hdc
Where /dev/hdc is the CD-ROM device, the loram boot entry avoids RAM disk creation and CD-ROM detection.
Note that on a system with such a low amount of memory, the first thing to do is add swap!
You need 10MB to use the boot scripts with:
boot: loram root=/dev/hdc
In this case you can add arguments like kmap=, config=, etc."
I am thinking about trying to dual boot this on my Win95 laptop with 24 megs of ram.
@jefro This thread got me to thinking about Beos so I fired up a WinME tower I hadn't used in years, broke out a floppy and fired up Beos 5 Personal Edition. I couldn't find my QNX-on-a-floppy but I still have it on a bootable CD. Fun.
"And what to do with only 8MB RAM?
