<DIV>My installation is 6 mb, since I'm installing into 32 mb, I haven't tried 
too hard to pair it down. I'm installing on Soekris net4526 boards. Keep in mind 
there are somethings you can do after you build you filesystem with Gentoo to 
make the install even smaller:</DIV>
<DIV><BR class=khtml-block-placeholder></DIV>
<DIV>Remove /usr/include</DIV>
<DIV>Remove all .keep files</DIV>
<DIV>Audit the rest of the file system for unnecessary files, expecially /etc 
and /var</DIV>
<DIV><BR class=khtml-block-placeholder></DIV>
<DIV>I have a series of scripts I've written to automate the process described 
in the above howto, and I would like to publish them shortly, but please don't 
hold your breath. :)</DIV>
