Question Possible with 16MB, P120 and 1.1GB HD ?

Hello, those are the basic stats for my new (old) laptop. I am thinking of installing a custom slack 8.1 on it, cutting out anything I don't use ... ~600MB ... throw in 128MB swap or maybe 192MB ... I do want to run xfree86 4.2.0 and fluxbox though. What's the likelyhood of this ? I know the 16MB is a serious cap.

That shouldn't be a problem as long as you don't install a desktop.
