    lightest version, install from floppies ?!

    pls, s'cuse me for the dumb question, guys, but i need to set up linux on a "dinosuar"-old machine (16 RAM, 1 MB VRAM, 1.5 GB HDD) and - here's the "good" part - it has only floppy drive - no CD ROM, no internet. So, I was wondering if there is a way of installing some kind of linux - just any kind via floppy drive only or maybe some other clever idea from you ?! sorry, if I sound a bit stupid...
    Thanx a bunch.

    Check out mulinux it is excelent.. you will need at leat the root disk and one of the module disks:

    It uses a 2.0 kernel iirc (or 2.2)
